Prosecutor says no charges filed in groping case

PHOENIX (AP) - The Maricopa County Attorney's Office says that no charges have been filed against a Colorado woman arrested on suspicion of groping a female Transportation Security Administration agent in Phoenix.

After initially reviewing the case against 61-year-old Yukari Miyamae, the County Attorney determined the facts alleged did not rise to the level of a felony offense under state law and referred the matter to the Phoenix City Prosecutor for review and possible charging as a misdemeanor.

Police said Miyamae is accused of grabbing the left breast of an unidentified agent Thursday afternoon after the TSA said she refused to go through passenger screening. She was arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse, which is a felony.
