Getting arrested for an airplane DUI is probably the worst way to try and satisfy one's pilot license requirements. But that's exactly what a Nevada man says he was trying to do.
Paul Weddle, 47, of Henderson, allegedly took off in a plane from a small airport outside Las Vegas while under the influence Sunday night. After a scuffle with police upon landing, Weddle submitted to a voluntary Breathalyzer test and registered a 0.132 percent blood-alcohol level, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
So how exactly does one get a DUI from taking an airplane out for a spin?
