Pilot Arrested For Rape At ATL Concourse C?

Wed Aug 03, 2005 12:23 pm

Not to distract anyone from the AF accident (thank God no fatalities)...

I heard on the radio tonight that an airline pilot was arrested for an alleged rape that occurred at ATL in a stairwell in Concourse C, with the pilot in full uniform.

I couldn't find any information online. Does anyone know anything about this?

Clearly a case of getting into the wrong cockpit?

Well if this really happened, then it is either an ASA pilot or an AirTran pilot.

Okay, I did find this on ajc.com; doesn't say anything about "in uniform"

Man arrested in rape at airport

A Florida man is in police custody today on charges that he raped a 16-year-old girl at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Michael D. Matthews, 39, of Daytona Beach, Fla., allegedly attacked the Florida teen in a stairway in Concourse C about 2 p.m. Tuesday, said Sylvia Abernathy, an Atlanta Police Department spokeswoman.

Matthews had a commercial pilot's license in his possession when Atlanta police took him into custody, Abernathy said.

hhhmmm....perhaps I'm missing something, but why would it be limited to an ASA or AirTran pilot??

Wow.....from a uniformed airline pilot to a guy who just happened to have a pilots license.......
