HALIFAX - A 24-year-old woman from Porters Lake is being charged with assaulting an officer after being questioned by police in the Halifax airport about an alleged mid-flight sexual act.
RCMP were called to the airport on Friday around 5:30 p.m. regarding a complaint about a pair on Air Canada Flight 610 from Toronto.
