Charlie Baker’s son will cooperate with any probe into alleged incident on flight, governor’s office says

Governor Charlie Baker’s office said Friday night that his adult son A.J. will cooperate with any investigation into an alleged incident on a JetBlue flight earlier this week.

WBZ first reported that an adult female passenger told authorities that Andrew Baker, known as A.J., groped her breast on a JetBlue flight from Washington, D.C., to Boston Wednesday night.

Authorities would not comment Friday night on the details of the incident. However, JetBlue issued a statement saying, “On June 20, the crew of flight 1354 were notified of an incident between customers shortly before landing in Boston. The aircraft landed at approximately 11 p.m. local time where it was met by local authorities.”


JetBlue said it was unable to confirm any customer details.

In a statement Friday night, Lizzy Guyton, a spokeswoman for the governor, said “This is a personal matter for the Baker Family and A.J. will cooperate with any request from authorities.”

No charges have been filed in connection with the matter.

A.J. Baker’s attorney, Roberto Braceras, said in an e-mail that “A.J. is fully cooperating and looks forward to a resolution of this matter.”

The Massachusetts Port Authority, which owns and operates Logan International Airport, deferred questions to State Police. That agency also declined to comment on the alleged incident, saying it was not in the department’s jurisdiction, and directed questions to the US Attorney’s Office.


A spokeswoman for that office said in an e-mail Friday night that the agency does not confirm or deny investigations.

A.J. Baker, one of the governor’s three children, graduated from college in 2016.
