Drunk Pilot Pulled From Plane Before Take Off
from wftv.com ........... AMSTERDAM -- Dutch police say they have arrested and fined an intoxicated American pilot who was preparing to take off with a passenger jet.
The National Police Corps has not identified the pilot or his airline, but says he is a 52-year-old captain from Woodbury, N.J. He does not fly for a Dutch airline, according to a police statement published Tuesday.
Police say they arrested the man in the cockpit of his plane after an anonymous tip. A breath test found he had a blood alcohol content of 0.023 percent - a hair above the legal limit in the Netherlands.
The pilot was fined euro700 ($900) and released, the statement said. The flight was canceled.
"There is also a river called Helikon [in Pieria]. (...) But, they go on to say, the women who killed Orpheus wished to wash off in it the blood-stains, and thereat the River sank underground, so as not to lend its waters to cleanse manslaughter."
