If you like to take naps during a plane flight this story will change your mind about that.

A Texas man is accused of fondling a sleeping woman who sat next to him onboard a Southwest flight from Texas to Nashville, Tenn.

The Tennessean reports Alfredo Vela IV is charged with sexual battery for touching a woman inappropriately while she slept as the plane made its way from Texas to Tennessee.

His arrest affidavit says the unnamed woman spoke briefly before the plane took off on Sunday evening. She told police she awoke to find Vela rubbing her back. She also told police Vela touched her chest and inner thigh before trying to put his hand up her skirt.

Alfredo admitted to police he was scratching the women's back but stopped talking the moment he was arrested. He has since posted bail. It is not clear if Vela has a lawyer who can comment on the case.
