The adult son of Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker was charged with sexual violence on Wednesday on a JetBlue flight.
The incident allegedly happened on the 1354 flight from Washington, D.C., to Boston, after the Boston ABC subsidiary WCVB.
"On June 20, the crew of Flight 1354 was notified of an incident between customers shortly before landing in Boston," JetBlue said in a statement. "The plane landed at about 11 am local time, where it was hit by local authorities."
A woman on the flight accused Andrew Baker, known as A.J., of touching herself improperly, WCVB reported.
"AJ cooperates fully and gladly Looking to solve this issue, "said Baker's attorney Roberto Braceras in a statement to ABC News.
The US Attorney General, who would normally be responsible for a case on an airplane, said she could neither "confirm nor deny" this case.
The Massachusetts State Police said that "the matter is being handled by the US Attorney's Office".
The governor's office made a comment saying, "This is a personal matter for the Baker family and A.J. will cooperate with any request from authorities."
Baker, a Republican, took office as Governor of Massachusetts in January 2015. In 2010, he competed against Democrat Deval Patrick, but lost before beating Martha Coakley in 2014. The 61-year-old is running for reelection this year.
A.J.. is one of the governor's three children, two boys and a girl.
