Watch: JetBlue Flight Attendant Steven Slater Appears at Court


Former JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater appeared in court in NYC this morning, escorted by gay publicist to the stars Howard Bragman.

City Room reports:

"Mr. Slater steeled himself for the storm that awaited him after the hearing before Judge Gerald. He took a deep breath and headed down the courthouse steps, answering no questions from reporters who surrounded him. He was escorted by court officers who shepherded him between two parked cars and into a double-parked sport utility vehicle. Mr. Horwitz added a fresh twist to Mr. Slater’s work history: After saying that Mr. Slater had “a longstanding, well-regarded reputation in the industry” — the airline industry — Mr. Horwitz said that Mr. Slater had “voluntarily resigned” from JetBlue on Sept. 1. As for whether he was guilty of the charges, his publicist, Howard Bragman, answered, “That’s for the court to decide.” Mr. Bragman did not answer when asked whether Mr. Slater had mental health concerns or drug or drinking problems."

A plea deal is reportedly underway.

  2. He must be getting all this exposure because he's a good example for people who want to know what gay men are like. Please. Let's have as much coverage as possible.

  5. Before retiring, I spent an average of at least three airline flights a week over a period of 22 years, and can say that the traveling general public can be very obnoxious and totally unconcerned with their own safety and that of other passengers. I have often wondered why the plane's personnel did not have many of them arrested upon landing for their actions. He does not deserve prosecution; he deserves a commendation.
