A New Jersey pilot who dropped three rolls of toilet paper over a school from a plane struck a deal with prosecutors that has seen him sentenced to probation instead of hard time.
The deal also requires that Warren Saunders writes an apology to the mayor and council of Hackensack for the incident, which occurred on October 13 of this year. The 60-year-old pilot pleaded guilty to a single charge of “dropping objects from an aircraft in a thickly inhabited area.”
What was he thinking? It turns out that Warren’s actions were probably ill-considered rather than ill-intentioned. He said that he wanted to cover the school’s football field in streamers in preparation for an upcoming game. He said that he did not realize that there were children on the field at the time.
