“Those in command of passenger jets, or any other form of public transportation, have an obligation to serve the public in the safest and most responsible way possible,” U.S. Attorney Eileen Decker said. Arnston was hired initially by Jet America in 1982. The co-pilot said Arntson may have left the cockpit during the flight to stretch his legs. He had not testified about any beverage consumption during the flight. Crew members said they didn’t see him drink any alcohol. The pilote wasn’t taking any medication that could have influenced the first test. Arntson is free on $25,000 and could face up to 15 years in federal prison.
