Singer Elvis Crespo Accused Of Masturbating On A Plane

Grammy Award winning Puerto Rican-American Merengue singer Elvis Crespo is being investigated after complaints that he was seen masturbating on a flight from Houston to Miami.

At least one woman saw him masturbating in view of other passengers and the disturbance prompted the plane's captain to radio Miami International Airport's air traffic control tower.

According to the police report, 52-year-old Patricia Perea of Texas says she was sitting next to the singer when about 15 minutes after takeoff, Crespo covered himself with a blanket and began to masturbate, then exposed himself to her and other passengers.

Officers interviewed Crespo upon his arrival but did not arrest him. When asked about the accusation, the 37-year-old singer simply told police: "I don't recall doing that."

Crespo first gained fame in the mid-90s when he joined Grupo Mania, in Puerto Rico. He decided to go solo in 1998, not unlike on the plane, and his debut album 'Suavemente' was named the Best Male Tropical/Salsa Album of the Year from Billboard magazine.
