Police: Alcohol found inside plane that crashed on runway


HE SHOWED REMORSE AND KNEW POLICE WOULD BE COMING ONCE THE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO WAS RELEASED. THANK YOU. RIGHT NOW, A LOCAL PILOT IS OUT ON BAIL, ACCUSED OF TRYING TO FLY UNDER THE INFLUENCE WITH A CHILD IN HIS PLANE. HE NEVER MADE IT OFF THE GROUND YESTERDAY. HE THEN RAN INTO A BUILDING AT THE MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. DAN BILLOW HAS THE LATE-BREAKING DETAILS ON HIS ARREST. CHRISTOPHER HALL LEFT THE JAIL THIS MORNING AROUND 9:00, AFTER POSTING A BOND, HE HAD NOTHING TO SAY AS HE WAS LEAVING. IT WAS YESTERDAY AFTERNOON THE PLANE HAD A MINOR CRASH OFF THE TAXIWAY HERE AT MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL. LITTLE DAMAGE WAS DONE. THERE WERE NO INJURIES. POLICE SAY IN A NEWLY RELEASED REPORT THIS MORNING THAT HE SMELLED OF ALCOHOL, HIS SPEECH WAS SLURRED AND AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS ALSO SAID HIS SPEECH WAS SLURRED AS THEY SPOKE TO HIM WHILE THEY WERE TRYING TO GIVE HIM INSTRUCTIONS ON THE TAXIWAY YESTERDAY, INSTRUCTIONS THAT HE FAILED TO FOLLOW. HOLD YOUR POSITION. I DIDN’T TELL YOU TO MOVE. RETURN TO THE HANGAR AND CALL THE TOWER. WHERE ARE YOU GOING, SIR? TURN YOUR ENGINES OFF, SIR. KILL YOUR ENGINES. HALL IS CHARGED WITH RECKLESS OPERATION OF AN AIRCRAFT UNDER THE INFLUENCE AND CHILD ABUSE WITHOUT GREAT BODILY VIOLENCE OR GREAT BODILY HARM. IN HIS AIRCRAFT, POLICE FOUND A HALF EMPTY BOTTLE OF COGNAC, AN UNOPENED BOTTLE OF WINE AND A WATER BOTTLE THAT FILLED WITH CONTENTS THAT SMELLED LIKE ALCOHOL. HE IS THE PRINCIPAL ENGINEER FOR WIRELESS SYSTEMS ENGINEERING IN SATELLITE BEACH. TODAY WE’RE LOOKING INTO MORE INTO HIS BACKGROUND AND WILL BRING YOU MORE ABOUT THIS PILOT

  1. Child abuse? He should have been charged with child endangerment. He didn't abuse the child so much as he did put him in danger.
