What the hell is it with freaky passengers with Denver connections these days?

First, we told you about the man with a thing for shaving topless -- followed by the drunken guy who tried to leave a still-flying plane and a passenger who allegedly engaged in a game of grab-ass with two flight attendants.

Now, there's Murali Krishna Nookella, who has been accused of exposing himself on a Southwest Airlines flight from Philadelphia to Denver. But there was a whole lot more than just showing off according to the criminal complaint. Here's the key passage, featuring Nookella and a passenger known only as "C.S.A.:"

Nookella then leaned back in his seat. He had a mustard/gold blanket pulled up to his waist. C.S.A. noticed that Nookella's eyes were closed as his hands moved all around his groin area underneath his blanket. C.S.A. did not notice an erection. C.S.A. did not think Nookella was asleep because there was not enough time for him to fall asleep. C.S.A. thought the situation was weird. She began to pack up her belongings so that she could change seats. C.S.A. looked at Nookella and saw him holding his erect penis. C.S.A. was positive that she saw Nookella's penis. C.S.A. had eye contact with Nookella. He was not asleep when she saw him holding his penis. Nookella said to C.S.A., "You caught me." C.S.A. replied, yeah I did. Nookella's left hand held a napkin. C.S.A. didi not look but heard a swishing sound. She thought Nookella wiped something. C.S.A. got up to leave. Nookella responded that he would go and move to the back. Nookella moved to the back.

Not soon enough, apparently, for Nookella to join the Mile High Club without the assistance of a partner. Now, swishing sounds will have a new and extremely connotation for C.S.A. and the rest of us.

Oh yeah: Nookella, who's free on a $5,000 bond, has been ordered by a judge not to fly. Good call, your honor.
