LAS VEGAS (CLASS) – A man accused of groping a woman in a Las Vegas casino on Sunday’s Super Bowl is now accused of open and rude debauchery. The woman, Ariel Lindsay, began recording the man immediately after the alleged incident took place at the Palazzo Hotel on February 13, and a few days later published it on TikTok to “raise awareness” of what had happened to her.
In the video, she angrily confronts a man while her friends try to find hotel security. Meanwhile, the man, later identified as 39-year-old Alberto Baes-Messinas, fled.
The video has been viewed more than 7 million times. Within days, hotel security identified Baeza-Messinas as an employee and took him into custody.
According to the arrest report, Baez-Messinas confessed to crawling under Lindsay’s skirt and touching her buttocks as she walked past him. He told police he “does not know what has happened to him.”
Baes-Messinas was arrested for open and gross lewdness and placed in a Clark County Detention Center.
