Pilot Arrested for Being Naked Gets Wrongful Arrest Settlement

A United Airlines pilot who was arrested for being naked in his hotel room overlooking Denver International Airport got a $300,000 wrongful arrest settlement from the city, a report said.

Andrew Collins was arrested in September 2018 inside the Westin after airport employees reported seeing the pilot touching himself through the 10th-floor hotel window, according to Fox31 Denver.

Collins’ attorney, Craig Silverman, said it’s not against the law to be naked inside a Denver hotel room. He also claimed that Collins had no clue he could be seen from the outside, the report said.

A judge dismissed the charges in March. Collins, who was suspended for six months, is now flying again.
