AF Pilot arrested for assault & battery at CPH

An AF pilot got into a heated argument with ground staff refueling his aircraft at CPH yesterday, which ended with the pilot butting his opponent. The pilot was arrested by Danish police.

The passengers must really have appreciated the resulting delay!

Here is a link to a thread on Airliners.net on the topic, with some translation of the article.

Looks like the guy went off the deep end.....

My last CDG-CPH flight on AF had one angry pilot (even the FAs were commenting) .... I wonder if it's the same fellow.

The pilot has paid a 5,000 Danish kronor admission of guilt fine. The alternative was prosecution, which would probably have resulted in a jail term followed by deportation.

Hope this stunt will get him fired : I certainly would not want to fly with a pilot like this.
