JetBlue Flight Attendant Steven Slater Free on Bail

Steven Slater left on Tuesday night the Bronx detention center we was incarcerated in. It will be remembered that he gained internet “fame” after his altercation with a passenger landed him in jail for charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and criminal trespass, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office. He was released on a $2,500 bail.

Diane Slater, Steven’s mother, defended him in an interview saying, “I don’t think he’s going to be in trouble very long. I think he just had a very small meltdown, and I think he deserves to be able to have that meltdown if you saw the egg on his head where he got smacked.”

Slater had a scratch on his forehead, but has declined to say whether he got it during his now internet (in)famous altercation with a passenger on the flight, who has only been identified as being a woman.

As Slater exited the jail, he told CNN-affiliate WABC that, “It’s been very, very appreciated. And it seems like something here has resonated with a few people and that’s kind of neat.”
