Navy officer denies groping woman on nuclear submarine

"They were in a passageway together having a conversation about what they were doing that evening and during that time, Purdue reached out and touched her breast." The alleged victim told the hearing: "He groped my right breast. My initial reaction was, 'What the f*** are you doing?'
