Felony charges will not be filed against a Colorado woman who is accused of groping a Transportation Security Administration officer at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.
Sixty-one-year old Yukari Mihamae had faced a felony count of sexual abuse after she allegedly squeezed and twisted the breast of a TSA officer at a security checkpoint.
“Ms. Miyamae felt panicked and experienced a volatile aversion to the TSA personnel violating her personal physical space,” her attorney explained. “She felt endangered and threatened based upon prior traumatizing security pat-downs, repugnance at the prospect of being touched again in such a violent and undignified manner, and instinctively pushed the female TSA agent away.”

CNN asked about the friendship at Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate, where moderator Anderson Cooper put the question to the entire field of candidates -- even though no questions had been asked about climate change or China.

‘Donald Trump’s Saigon’: Ambassador Susan Rice slams the president’s Syria ‘screw-up’
Former national security advisor to President Barack Obama, Susan Rice, said that it's clear that President Donald Trump has made such a significant blunder on Syria that it's on par with the fall of Saigon in the Vietnam War.
"Let’s talk about what’s happening now in Syria," said MSNBC substitute host Joy Reid. Rice was appearing on MSNBC to promote her recent book about her life and professional career.
"What do you make of the fact Donald Trump has a phone call with the autocrat from Turkey and suddenly yanks U.S. troops out?" asked Reid. "He does have financial interests in Turkey. We know he has a personal interest there. What do you make of that decision, and how would that impact our national security? We know that ISIS was at least in some camps where they seemed to have disappeared."
