BOSTON – Prosecutors say a Rhode Island man looking for his lost luggage at Boston's Logan International Airport punched, spat on, and sprayed hand lotion in a state trooper's face.
Kevin Luczak was granted $500 bail after pleading not guilty Wednesday to charges including assault and battery on a police officer.
Authorities say the 28-year-old Narragansett, Rhode Island, man walked into a baggage office to make a claim about his at bag at about 11 p.m. Tuesday.
The trooper had been notified by the flight crew about an on-board incident involving Luczak.
Police say Luczak sprayed hand lotion in the trooper's face, which prompted a scuffle that spilled onto a moving baggage carousel.
Luczak's attorney said his client is a graduate student who sprayed the lotion as a joke and denies spitting.
