Susanne Mondlin of Roosevelt, N.J., declared in papers filed in the State Supreme Court that while she was serving coffee to members of the Boston team aboard a charter flight to Detroit, Petrocelli "wilfully and indecently assaulted her." Mrs. Mondlin, also a part-time model, said Petrocelli placed his arms around her "from the back, grabbing her breasts with both hands." She said she freed herself and continued her duties. In the meantime, she said, the ballplayer returned to his seat, cursed her and made threatening gestures. Later, the stewardess said, while serving soft drinks, Petrocelli kicked her in the leg, causing her to spill the drinks on him and other passengers. Petrocelli then punched the stewardess in the head, she said, knocking her across the aisle. She said Petrocelli attempted to strike her again but was restrained by two other passengers. She said she fled to the cockpit, where she remained until the plane landed and all passengers disembarked. She did not return to work until November, losing $4,200 in wages and $5,600 in modelling fees.
