American Eagle pilot suspected of having gun in bag
DALLAS, Jan 7 (Reuters) - A pilot for regional jet carrier American Eagle was arrested over the weekend for allegedly trying to take a loaded handgun aboard a plane, according to documents obtained on Tuesday.
Federal screeners allegedly found the handgun in a carry-on bag of pilot William Livingston Jr., 29, as he tried to pass through security at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Sunday, according to an arrest report filed by the airport''s Department of Public Safety.
Congress has given commercial pilots permission to carry weapons on planes after they have received special training. But the Transportation Department has not yet developed a plan for implementing that program.
The arrest report said Livingston told security officials that his wife packed his bag and brought it to him.
American Eagle is a regional carrier affiliated with American Airlines, which is a division of AMR Corp.
We take these type of things seriously and we are currently conducting our own investigation into the matter, an American Eagle spokeswoman said.
I wonder is he just stupid and trying to throw the blame on to his wife? Or is his wife looking to rid her self of a husband for ten to twenty?
