SMH: U.S. Pilot Pleads Guilty to Flying While Slizzard

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News, SMH

Damn, why he gotta be a Black man???

A United Airlines pilot who was pulled from his trans-Atlantic flight to Chicago shortly before takeoff pleaded guilty Tuesday to being above the alcohol limit for flying a plane.

Erwin Vermont Washington, of Lakewood, Colo., was removed from United Airlines Flight 949, which was scheduled to fly from London’s Heathrow Airport to Chicago in November, after a co-worker suspected him of being drunk.

Prosecutor Kevin Christie said two policemen spoke to Washington about the concerns and performed a breath test especially designed for aviation staff, which he failed. He recorded a reading of 31 micrograms of alcohol per 100 milliliters of breath. The legal limit is nine micrograms.
The flight was canceled and the plane’s 124 passengers were put on other flights. A blood test performed shortly after the breath test also showed that Washington had 50 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood. The limit for pilots is 20 milligrams. the legal limit for driving a car is 80 milligrams. The 51-year-old pilot pleaded guilty at Uxbridge Magistrates Court near London and was released on unconditional bail. He will be sentenced Feb. 5. United Airlines said in a statement that the pilot has been removed from service duty during legal proceedings and the company’s own investigation.

Washington’s lawyer, Chris Humphreys, said the pilot was remorseful. Referring to similar cases, Humphreys said an American Airlines pilot who recorded a reading of 39 milligrams of alcohol was given a fine last July, Another pilot who had 60 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood was given a suspended sentence. Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service said the maximum sentence for aviation staff being over the legal limit for flying is two years in jail and a fine.

  • UrHeinessDaQueen

    no matter what race..no pilot should get themselves into compromised situations such as these since ppl’s lives basically rely on them while being thousands of feet up in the air..very poor/careless work ethic

  • chaka1

    What’s that skin condition on his face called?

  • Bossip sucks

    Silly rabbits he is not the first or the last trust, a lot of pilots are seen in bars before flights, I just hope its nevar a pilot on my plane. Sad but true.

    @drenk~~` you do have folks saying “why is that on here , this is a black site, i would never say that im here to comment and dont give a damn if Elmer Fudd is on here i’ll talk about him too, i dont understand what difference does it make white black or blue on here, they talk bad about blacks on perez hilton and the other so called white sites!!

    Other people’s lives are in your hand and that is what you choose to do? Get help, you need it.
    Why does the action of one black person have to represent all black people? I don’t hear any other race doing that. Black people put themselves down when they constantly do that.
    Like that Kanye thing at the award show. He looked like an a.s.s by himself. But black people had to make it known that he was a black a.s.s. SMH.
    When lil mama stepped on stage, then it become a “look at these black people” moment.

    @ Rose

    Nope I have dreads. Thank you for the compliment.

    @ Drenk

    I agree…but then they shouldn’t say Why he gotta be a black man as if it doesn’t happen. They should honestly sometimes just post the story and keep their kindergarten remarks to themselves.

  • http://perryone779@yahoo,com rose by any other name # 9304026339482056536 ™

    @macori88~~ I hear you but dont forget with Kanye, the day after it happen i went to the white sites and they were putting the whole black race down, even talking about all rappers and even brought up his deceased mother! i had to get on there and read their a**es from a to z… thats not called for from any race… but it does hit deep when your own race puts you down! trust when Britney S had that meltdown those white folks had her back all the way and the whole blog was full of .. wishing her a speedy recovery and full of excuses for her behavior.. so sad how harsh black folks judge each other and i havent seen a damn thing that we do that they havent done .. some have done it first!!

  • http://perryone779@yahoo,com rose by any other name # 9304026339482056536 ™

    @IJM.. oops sorry.. looks like braids.. but anyway its looks great and im all for dreads, braids and natural styles believe it or not i have a press and curl , no relaxer, no weave , no extensions and my hair is 2 inches past my shoulders… its a nice length and the shop i go to specializes in healthy hair and carol’s daughter products. i dont like weave but i never have judged a weave wearer , if thats your thing thats you but im more for natural! i have been wearing a press and curl so long till folks always think i have a relaxer.. but no !!

  • http://perryone779@yahoo,com rose by any other name # 9304026339482056536 ™

    @Drenk.. i hear you and the only thing that gets me going is the trolls that bring there comments to you and then feel the need to call you out on your comments. bringin up the ratings or not, its just ignorant and childish and everyone is entitled to their opinions, thats why i got off those stupid kim k, coco and anything to do with fake butts. I commented that i have a big natural butt and all he** broke loose like that sent the mafia up in here. next thing i got all the hate about “oh i’d rather have a brain than a big butt” never said i didnt have a brain and why would females give a damn anyway what another female has! but i was posting to Glok and not them .. but anyway its a new year and some folks need to get it together !!
