American singer-songwriter Howie Day may feel lucky as he's been pleaded innocent to a charge of interfering with a flight crew at his arraignment Friday Dec 23rd in East Boston District Court. The pop star previously was arrested at Boston`s Logan International Airport for rowdy behavior aboard an American Airlines flight after he became intoxicated from a mix of alcohol and a sleeping pill.
To make it clear, Day's lawyer Paul Kelley explained that his client was returning home for the holidays and took a pill to help him sleep on the flight from Dallas. "He had a couple of drinks. The pill interacted with the drinks and he became intoxicated. He feels badly if he inconvenienced anyone, or caused any discomfort," Kelley said. "He has and will apologize, and our hope is that we'll be able to resolve this thing as promptly as possible."
Thus, the 24-year-old pop singer pleaded innocent and was released on personal recognizance. Refused to comment further on the case, Day is due back in court March 16, 2006.
