Research In Motion has suspended two employees whose drunken
rowdiness landed them in jail after forcing an Air Canada flight
to make an emergency detour to Vancouver this week.
Forty-five-year-old George Campbell of Conestogo and 38-year-old
Paul Alexander Wilson of Kitchener have been ordered to pay
restitution totalling $71,757 after pleading guilty to mischief.
The pair were apparently so intoxicated and belligerent on their
packed Toronto to Beijing flight that the crew had to physically
restrain them, according to the Richmond RCMP. One report, from a
fellow passenger, said they had to be handcuffed to seats.
Ten bucks says they’re the same guys who ordered a production run of two million PlayBooks.
