Pregnant woman groped during flight

A Chicago man is accused of groping a pregnant woman and refusing to follow crew instructions on a JetBlue flight, prompting the plane to make an emergency landing in Denver.
The US Attorney's Office in Denver said Tuesday that Marcus Covington has been charged with interfering with the duties of a flight crew and flight attendant.
Authorities allege the 32-year-old was intoxicated and groped the pregnant woman as he waited for the bathroom while on the New York-bound flight from Los Angeles late Sunday.
Federal prosecutors say Covington refused a flight attendant's request to stay seated, prompting an FBI agent traveling on the plane to intervene. Covington sat between the agent and another passenger until the plane landed.
Covington is in custody and doesn't have a lawyer yet.
