Boat Groper

JULY 21--After grabbing the buttocks of a fellow female passenger on a sightseeing cruise, a Florida Woman told the victim’s husband, “You should go back to the country you came from” when he confronted her about the groping, police report.

During a trip Friday afternoon on the Anclote River, which flows into the Gulf of Mexico, Lisa Anne Matteson allegedly got handsy with a fellow traveler, according to an arrest affidavit. Matteson, 58, appeared intoxicated, according to several witnesses on the Spongearama cruise boat.

Police allege that Matteson, seen at right, twice grabbed the victim’s buttocks and declared, “Oh, it’s curved and nice” and “I would do you.” Matteson pawed the woman “in front of the victim’s six-year-old daughter,” cops allege.

When the victim’s husband asked Matteson to stop, she replied, “You should go back to the country you came from.” The affidavit does not identify the man’s race or nationality.

After Tarpon Springs police arrested her for misdemeanor battery, Matteson denied grabbing the victim’s buttocks, saying she “didn’t remember anything and doesn’t know why she was arrested.”

But when asked about her comment to the husband, Matteson reportedly admitted telling the man to return to “the country you came from.”

Matteson, who lives with her husband in Port Richey, a Tampa suburb, was released from the county jail early Saturday morning after posting $500 bond. (1 page)
