Remember Steven Slater?

A little over a year after he rose to national prominence by quitting his job as a JetBlue flight attendant - via a meltdown that included screaming at a passenger and sliding down the emergency escape - this Long island resident is free from the constraints of the law.

Slater was sentence to a year of probation after the incident, which included court-mandated mental health appointments. He was also forced to pay JetBlue $10,000 in restitution for the emergency slide.

"It's great to see that there is an alternate to hard time for cases that, in my mind, don't necessarily merit hard time," Slater told CNN this week. "This was a good alternative."
