A former Alaska Airlines pilot who flew a passenger plane while drunk has been sentenced in California to a year and a day in federal prison.
David Hans Arntson of Newport Beach was also fined $10,000 on Wednesday.
In 2014, Arntson flew an Alaska Airlines flight from San Diego to Portland, Oregon, and then took a second plane from Portland to John Wayne Airport in Southern California.
After landing there, he underwent random testing that found his blood-alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit.
U.S. District Judge Cormac J. Carney says Arntson engaged in ``a very dangerous offense.''
Arntson retired, and his pilot's license was revoked.
