JetBlue Bids Farewell to Steven Slater

by at . Comments

His 15 minutes may have been up weeks ago, but JetBlue has returned Steven Slater's name to the headlines.

The airline has announced that the man who hilariously, dangerously resigned amidst a curse-filled, emergency slide-utilized tirade will NOT be rehired by the company. Spokeswoman Jenny Dervin said on Saturday that Slater, who says he's return to the job, will never work for JetBlue again.

Meanwhile, Slater's attorney, Howard Turman, recently released his own statement, elucidating what went down at the conclusion of his client's infamous flight:

"A number of passengers were competing for overhead carry-on luggage areas. With great difficulty, they were shoving the bags around, attempting to get it in. Steven came over to assist and either the bag or the overhead (bin door) hit him in the head and at that point he suffered an injury.

"[A woman] started cursing and - based on the information - slammed the overhead luggage bin on his head."

Slater has pleaded not guilty to charges of reckless endangerment and criminal mischief. Facing up to seven years in jail, he has a court appearance scheduled for tomorrow.
