The woman said her seatmate stopped touching her when she opened her eyes. While the onboard crew was talking to the woman, Ramamoorthy's wife came to the back to see what was going on, Jawad said.

Ramamoorthy's wife told officials, 'they had called the flight attendants to try to change seats. "There have been no allegations from anywhere that his behavior has ever been inappropriate prior to this incident".

Spirit spokesman Stephen Schuler said the airline is "fully cooperating with law enforcement".
