According to PEOPLE, Maxwell Berry, 22, was arrested following a flight on Frontier Airlines from Philadelphia to Miami on July 31.

After drinking three alcoholic beverages, Berry reportedly touched a flight attendant with a cup, brushing it against her from behind. He did so as he requested another drink, according to Washington Post.
