A DRUNK wo­man who groped a fel­low fe­male pas­sen­ger on board a flight strad­dled her and said: “I want to f**k!”

Heidi McKin­ney, 27, was al­ready drunk when she got on the flight from Las Ve­gas to Portland and sat next to a 19-year-old wo­man in an empty row.

McKin­ney tried to force the teenager to drink al­co­hol she had smug­gled on board and touched her breasts sev­eral times – leav­ing her hands to ‘linger’ on the wo­man’s chest.

She then tried to place her hands on the other wo­man’s gen­i­tals, licked her ears and then strad­dled her, telling her: “I want to f**k.”

When the wo­man re­jected her, McKin­ney called her “poor”. They were sep­a­rated on the plane and she was ar­rested upon land­ing.

McKin­ney’s male fi­ance later told author­i­ties she did not “me­tab­o­lize al­co­hol” and said “this is what hap­pens when she drinks”.

McKin­ney was sen­tenced to eight months home de­ten­tion and three years on pro­ba­tion when she ap­peared in court in Portland, Ore­gon.

She had pleaded guilty to as­sault with in­tent to com­mit a felony, which car­ried a max­i­mum penalty of 10 years be­hind bars and a £200,000 fine.

Pros­e­cu­tors told the court the vic­tim had been left per­ma­nently trau­ma­tised by the at­tack.

Lawyer Ravi Sinha said: “Miss McKin­ney did so with the in­tent to hu­mil­i­ate and ha­rass the vic­tim.

“She made con­tact with the vic­tim’s body, in­clud­ing her in­ner thigh, and made a se­ries of pro­fane and lewd state­ments to the vic­tim.”

She was ini­tially charged with abu­sive sex­ual con­tact but pleaded guilty to the lesser crime of as­sault with in­tent to com­mit felony.

Shortly af­ter an ear­lier court hear­ing in March, McKin­ney was found un­con­scious in a bar.

Pre­vi­ous court records re­veal she has a past con­vic­tions for drink driv­ing in 2008 and 2015. DRUNK: Heidi McKin­ney
