Border Patrol Pilot in Hot Water After Flying Helicopter Over Football Field for Son

 A father who flew a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol helicopter over a high school football field in northern Virginia has some explaining to do, the Washington Times reports.

From the low-flying helicopter, the border patrol pilot dropped a stuffed animal that carried an invitation to the homecoming dance from his son to a girl on Sept. 12.

It may have won over the 17-year-old student, but the federal government wasn’t as tickled, the Times reported.

“CBP management is looking into the matter and the pilot in command of the aircraft has been relieved and reassigned to administrative duties pending completion of the review of the incident,” Michael Friel, a spokesman for customs and Border Protection, said in a statement.

The pilot’s identity wasn’t released.
