No felony charges in Ariz. TSA agent groping case

Prosecutors in Arizona say they won't file felony charges against a Colorado woman accused of groping a female Transportation Security Administration agent at Phoenix's airport.

Prosecutors in Arizona say they won't file felony charges against a Colorado woman accused of groping a female Transportation Security Administration agent at Phoenix's airport.

Jerry Cobb, a spokesman for county prosecutors, said Tuesday that the facts don't rise to the level of a felony.

The case against 61-year-old Yukari Miyamae (YOO'-kar-ay MEE'-ah-my) of Longmont now goes to Phoenix's city prosecutor's office, which handles all misdemeanors in the city.

That office says it hasn't received the case and hasn't decided whether to charge Miyamae.

Police say Miyamae grabbed a breast of an unidentified agent Thursday after the TSA said she refused to go through passenger screening. She was arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse and released on her own recognizance.

Miyamae hasn't returned calls this week from The Associated Press.
