The pilot became so concerned of the situation, that he decided to return the plane to Calgary.
In making his return, the pilot had to dump 20,000 pounds of fuel, and doing so, is costly.
Young pled guilty to resisting arrest and not adhering to safety instructions.
WestJet has taken legal steps against David Young, and now a judge has ordered Young to reimburse WestJet for the the fuel.
How much with Young's shenanigans cost him? $21,260.68!
In addition, WestJet's losses from fuel and passenger payments combined could be above $200,000, which WestJet could pursue through a civil case.
