Nick Caporella, the billionaire CEO of National Beverage Corp., which owns LaCroix sparkling water, is being accused by two pilots of sexual harassment and inappropriate touching, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The details: The pilots allege that this behavior occurred "on more than 30 trips from 2014 to 2016," per the WSJ, while they flew second-in-command with Caporella. Caporella and his attorney, Glenn Waldman have denied the allegations, with Waldman stating that his client is being targeted "because he is wealthy and in his 80s."
