A man named by British media outlets as European Ryder Cup golfer Thorbjorn Olesen was arrested at Heathrow Airport.

The Independent reported he allegedly sexually assaulted a sleeping female passenger.

Olesen allegedly molested a woman on the flight and verbally abused passengers.

'It was shocking behaviour. "You would expect it maybe on a budget airline but not in the first-class cabin on BA (British Airways)". Poulter's agent, Paul Dunkley, told the Independent that Poulter then fell asleep for the long flight and was unaware of Olesen's behavior until police arrived at the landing gate to take Olesen into custody.

Olesen was met by Metropolitan Police at London Heathrow Airport Monday and arrested on charges of suspicion of sexual assault, being intoxicated aboard an aircraft and failing to comply with cabin crew orders.

Olesen, who beat three-time major victor Jordan Spieth to win a point for Europe at Le Golf National in Paris, was returning from the WGC St Jude Invitational.

Police were waiting to meet the BA flight from Nashville, Tennessee when it landed at Heathrow.

Thorbjorn Olesen is alleged to have assaulted a female passenger.

He finished in 27th place and posted a disappointed message on Twitter on Sunday.

Olesen, 29, who helped Europe beat the U.S. in Île-de-France last autumn, allegedly got drunk and molested his victim on the service from Nashville, Tennessee to Heathrow landing on Monday.
