UK police stop suspect drunk pilot at Heathrow

LONDON — British police say that a pilot has been arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport on suspicion of being drunk.

Scotland Yard said the 51-year-old man was taken to a police station Monday afternoon for a breathalyzer test, and results are expected back shortly.

A spokesman for the force said the man has been bailed and is still in the U.K. He did not divulge the man’s name or say for which airline he worked.

The Independent newspaper said the pilot worked for United Airlines. The paper reported today that 100 passengers on the airline’s London to Chicago flight were told to disembark because the pilot was “sick.”
