Ohio Motorist Doing Doughnuts... For The FAA
After a late-night "spin" on a snowy
runway last month, an Ohio motorist was charged with drunken
driving, trespassing with a motor vehicle, fleeing and eluding
police, defiant trespass, and two other traffic violations.
Twenty-four year-old Michael Montgomery of Streetsboro, OH was
observed by a deputy, speeding and doing doughnuts on the runway at
Beaver County Airport (BVI) with no lights on, at about 1:30 am on
Ignoring the deputy's orders to stop, Montgomery proceeded to an
FBO parking lot, nearly falling down as he exited his vehicle, the
Beaver County Times said.

airport, Montgomery claimed he had authorization from the Federal
Aviation Administration to conduct braking tests on the runway.
Taken to the nearby Chippewa police station, Montgomery was
uncooperative and refused to give officers his name and other
information, instead demanding to call a lawyer.
Beaver County Airport Manager Beth LaValle was called by
deputies to verify Montgomery's story, and said he had no authority
to be on the runway.
A subsequent blood test showed Montgomery to be intoxicated over
four times the legal limit, with a blood-alcohol level of 0.357
