Sounds a lot like the drug running America West pilots from the early 80's! Lol. ��

He has been on property less than 6 months. Hopefully he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

MUCH less than 6 months...

Based on the circumstances and the skank junkie he was with, I don't expect that it's going to turn out to be wrong place wrong time.

That's why it's always better to hang out with non-junkie skanks.

Who better to take the rap for him than a skank junkie? Simply provide her with an attorney and some cash when the case is over and call it a day.

Looks like he was just trying to get some tail. Heroin is a tough drug to be addicted to as a pilot. Not saying it is impossible but I think the screwed up hooker angle is probably more plausible.

Guy doesn't look like he's on H, but then I'm no expert. One of my fraternity brothers died of a heroin overdose 19 years ago this summer. I would have never guessed he used and I lived in the same house as him during the semester.

Nice body, questionable face. Maybe his wife is a cow and he just wanted to get up on a skinny chick. Probably seemed like a good idea at the time.
