Zero Witnesses Back Slater's Story

Authorities have interviewed every single passenger that was on Steven Slater’s last flight, and not a single one says events went down the way he’s been describing them, according to a Port Authority police official.

“Some passengers found him to be belligerent during the flight, some people saw him come on the plane with a head injury before the flight took off,” the unnamed Port Authority source told the Wall Street Journal. Furthermore, none of the passengers or crew saw any fighting between Slater and another passenger.

Slater, visibly muted, is currently negotiating a plea bargain.

Methinks his agent and publicist will be looking for emergency exit chutes of their own soon.
