Pilot Carl Fulton Being Held Without Bail

A Southwest Airlines flight to Phoenix was delayed after Federal Aviations Screening Technicians reported smelling alcohol on the pilot. The pilot was immediately removed and a breathalyzer was administered. Shortly thereafter, Pilot Carl Fulton was arrested and booked at Salt Lake County Jail on charges of operating a common carrier while under the influence of alcohol.

Pilot Carl Fulton was preparing to fly a Boeing 737 jetliner and 123 passengers to Phoenix, Arizona. The flight was scheduled to leave Salt Lake City International Airport at 8 a.m. The FBI is still investigating when and how much alcohol Fulton consumed prior to boarding the plane.
