Delta Pilot Fails Breathalyzer Test
A Delta Air Lines pilot failed a breathalyzer test for alcohol after he was taken off an airplane Thursday at Norfolk International Airport, airport officials said.
Gary Schroeder, 42, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.07, according to Ken Scott of the Norfolk Airport Authority. The Federal Aviation Administration's limit for a flight crew member is 0.04.
Scott said baggage screeners notified airport police after detecting alcohol on Schroeder's breath when he arrived to co-pilot the Cincinnati-bound flight.
