A former John Carroll School student who is allegedly responsible for flying a plane over Saturday's commencement at the Bel Air school has been charged, Bel Air Police said.
The former student, whose name was not released because he is under age 18, was charged with disorderly conduct, disrupting a school event and reckless endangerment, according to a news release issued by Bel Air Police Department Monday afternoon.
Bel Air Police said the juvenile, who is a licensed pilot, rented the plane from Harford Air Services in Churchville. Police released him to the custody of his parents.
Investigators are asking the public to send video footage of the aircraft flying over the ceremony. For more information, contact Det. Sgt. Jim Lockard, 410-638-4500 or email@example.com.
The single-engine plane made an unexpected appearance during commencement ceremony Saturday afternoon, flying over the graduates sitting on the school's athletic field.
Bel Air Police Chief Leo Matrangola wrote in an e-mail Saturday evening that the town Police Department had received a complaint about the plane, and officials planned to follow up with the "complainant" and the Federal Aviation Administration.
