Plead Guilty To Disorderly Conduct, Remain Suspended From
The saga of Pinnacle
Airlines employees Jeffrey Bradford and Adrianna Connor came one
step closer to resolution Monday. The two 24-year old employees --
he's a pilot, she's a flight attendant -- each pleaded guilty to
one charge of disorderly conduct, stemming from a nighttime
encounter in the woods near Swatara Township in central
As ANN reported, it all
started the evening of May 18, when Fire Chief Robert Furlong
called police after hearing noises outside his home. When he went
to investigate, Furlong found an intoxicated Connor inside the fire
department's Chevrolet Tahoe.
She told police there was a naked man in the woods... and after
searching on foot until almost midnight, they called in a
helicopter equipped with heat-vision. About that time, a woman who
lived nearby called 911 to report a naked man came out from behind
her parked car -- wearing flip-flops, a wristwatch, and nothing
else -- and asked her for a pair of shorts.
The two later admitted they'd gone into the woods to have sex,
reports the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
Bradford and Connor faced a multitude of charges -- including
indecent exposure, public lewdness, and theft of a motor vehicle --
but prosecutors took some pity on the couple, and dropped those
charges due to lack of evidence.
"I don't think it was anyone's intention to commit a crime
here," said Dauphin County prosecutor Michael L. Rozman.
For now, both remain suspended from Pinnacle, and each face a
$300 fine... but Connor's attorney said he's pleased to see the
legal case resolved.
"We think it was an appropriate result and are grateful it was
done in a timely manner without more invasion into their private
lives," attorney J. Michael Sheldon said.
"On a public service note, this is what alcohol can do."
