Police Stormed Room of United Pilot, Accusing Him of Waving Naked at TSA From His Window

A United Airlines pilot has been charged with indecent exposure for standing naked in front of his window at the Denver airport Westin during his run for President of the airline’s pilots union.

  • He admits he stood naked in front of his window
  • But denies he did so waving at TSA and doing other stuff, including but not limited to…

    “Some witnesses said I was dancing, gyrating and waiving,” Collins said. “I’m completely innocent. It’s really unfortunate that it happened at all.”

Police response was swift. They entered the pilot’s room “with guns drawn.. and taken to an airport jail.”

His attorney claims that people inside the concourse can see into the room but that guests cannot see out, and that the pilot was just walking around naked talking on the phone — not engaged in “any sexual activity demonstrating an intent to arouse or to satisfy the sexual desire of any person.”

Indeed, the pilot blames the whole thing on flying United,

Collins said he had been awake for more then 30 hours straight after being diverted to several different airports across the country during a severe thunderstorm.

This pilot would appear to fit in with the rest of United’s motley crew, whether it’s showing up late to fly in plain clothes, running a chain of brothels, drinking before flight, fighting with each other or botching the castration of a transgender woman. Did that culture stem from their previous CEO?

  1. Storming the room with guns is pretty ridiculous. I wish I could say something to the one word – “Americans” guy… But it’s pretty embarrassing, and he’s not wrong. The only solace, is that he will beat this charge easily. You have a reasonable expectation of privacy in both a hotel room, and your house.

  2. Yeah, what’s with the guns? This country needs to get its sht together if police are afraid of a naked guy in his hotel room.

  3. The pilot needs to sue TSA for illegal search. The hotel is NOT part of the area they have rights to search but it is covered by the Denver police dept because TSA can not cover the hotel as part of Airport property.

  4. who in the hell installs windows that allow you to see into someones room , but does not allow guests to see out of? is this some sort of a joke news article or are there window installers that are actually this freaking stupid? please remove them and the so -called officers that stormed the room with guns drawn from the gene pool immediately …and then charge them with the crime of impersonating window installers and police officers.
