Pro golfer Thorbjorn Olesen accused of sexual assault during flight to London
LONDON — Pro golfer Thorbjorn Olesen was arrested Monday at London’s Heathrow Airport on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman and peeing in the middle of an aisle during his flight.
TMZ reports that Olesen, 29, had been flying from Nasvhille, TN, with fellow PGA star Ian Poulter, with whom he’d just competed in the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis that weekend.
A witness claimed to have seen Olesen urinating in the aisle of the first class cabin. Later, after Poulter woke up from a nap, he learned that his fellow golf pro was now being accused of sexually assaulting a female passenger.
According to the Met. Police Department, Olesen was booked on charges including “suspicion of sexual assault, being drunk on board an aircraft and failing to comply with the orders of the cabin crew.”
Although he has since been released from custody, the investigation continues.
