Man Allegedly Does Figure-8's in Plane

Man Allegedly Does Figure-8's in Plane

This joy ride was grounded from the start. A sheriff's deputy arrested a man accused of getting into a small, private plane and doing figure-8's on the grass.
Bond was set at $1,500 for 32-year-old Robert Gene Walker. Authorities don't believe Walker has any flying experience.
Walker was arrested Saturday at the Tanglewood Airstrip on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, the plane.
A news release said Walker told the deputy that he was driving by and noticed the plane on the runway.
The deputy said Walker found the keys inside and started the plane, which eventually ended up nose-down in the grass.
Further details weren't immediately released by the sheriff's department.
