Suspected Drunk Delta Pilot Removed From Cockpit and Arrested 20 Minutes Before Flight

Epoch Times:

A Delta Air Lines pilot whom authorities suspected to be intoxicated was removed from a fully boarded plane in a Minnesota airport and arrested.

The pilot, later identified as 37-year-old Gabriel Lyle Schroeder, was taken into custody on Tuesday morning, July 30 after police officers at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport smelt alcohol from his breath and found a bottle of booze on him, reported CNN.

Before boarding the flight to San Diego, California, Schroeder was seen turning around and leaving a security line when he noticed extra screening, according to the airport’s spokesman Pat Hogan, reported CNN.

  1. About 25 years ago we boarded a large plane in Seattle and I got totally nauseous from the sweet smell of something that either was burning or had just been burnt. Almost like really nasty Cinnamon buns. To this day I believe someone on that plane or who was on that plane had heated some narcotic.

    So what type of drug smells like that?

  2. Get over it. Pilot is a dues-paying union member. Nothing is going to happen to him. Now the perfectly sober Mormon co pilot, sportin’ a Trump hat, he’s going to get raked over the coals by the MSM.

  3. “- Captain Clarence Oveur: You ever been in a cockpit before?
    – Joey: No sir, I’ve never been up in a plane before.
    – Captain Clarence Oveur: You ever seen a grown man naked?”

  4. The fact that he clanked when he staggered wuz a dead give-away.
    All those little bottles of airline booze are tough to keep quite!

  5. He had to get his courage up to fly. The airline fired the high paid american technicians and employed bicycle mechanics from India for replacements.

  6. Why would you so thoroughly screw your career into the ground?
    Lazlo’s buddy (not this asshole) flies for Delta. When he retires he will be moderately well off at 62, thinking of buying a beach house.
    Throwing all that away for booze.
    Hope this guy likes living in a third world shithole, because that’s the only place he will be able to continue flying
