Lewd conduct by a drunken couple from southern Minnesota on a flight from Las Vegas to the Twin Cities led to their arrests on a sex-related charge, according to police.

Police led Teresa M. Kohn, 43, of Spring Valley, and Tyler V. Boehm, 41, of Stewartville, off the Sun Country flight and handcuffed them soon after landing at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on Jan. 21. On Wednesday, they were issued a summons to appear in court in March on a misdemeanor charge of engaging in gross lewdness or lascivious behavior.

Police said the behavior involved her head under a blanket that was over his lap.

Kohn told police her head was under the blanket for 2 seconds, while a woman seated a row back told the Star Tribune it was closer to 5 to 10 minutes.

Kohn told officers they were “joking round” about joining the “mile high club,” a reference to having sex while on an airliner, according to an Airport Police incident report.

Boehm said Sunday, “We are getting a lawyer. It’s a joke. ... That’s all I can say.” Kohn was not available Sunday to respond.

Before the flight left Las Vegas, Kohn had been “belligerent towards the flight attendants,” the police report read. “Kohn was demanding beer before the flight had taken off and was denied.”

Jenny Huschka of Woodbury said the couple were “making out, and she was touching him all over. ... It was nonstop.”
