2 pilots arrested for suspected drunkenness before flight to NJ
Two United Airlines pilots were arrested after they were allegedly intoxicated before they were due to fly a passenger plane to Newark Liberty International Airport.
The two pilots, ages 45 and 35, were supposed to fly 141 passengers on a flight out Scotland. They were arrested Saturday at Glasgow Airport.
Both men are expected to be arraigned in a Scotland court on Monday.
United Airlines says yesterday's flight was delayed for 10 hours while the airline tried to find pilots to fill in.
The arrests come less than a month after two Canadian pilots were arrested at the same airport and charged with trying to fly while intoxicated.
