Police officers in Germany reportedly arrested for making illegal radio contact with air traffic.

According to Associated Press, the unnamed suspect gave fake flight orders while impersonating an aviation official.

Police swooped in on his apartment after he made contact with a police helicopter dispatched to the neighborhood.

Authorities then found two radios that transmitted on the frequencies needed to make contact with aircraft.

Cops said he gave “potentially dangerous” instructions and became increasingly professional with his communications.

They noted, however, that the actions of the arrested man did not result in any accidents or other incidents.

Meanwhile, two passengers face criminal charges for abruptly exiting a flight before takeoff at LaGuardia Airport.

According to various reports published on social media, they were accompanied by a service dog.

A spokesperson for Delta Airlines eventually confirmed that the incident happened on Delta Air Lines flight 462.

“[A] party of two opened a cabin door and exited the aircraft via the slide,” the airlines said in a statement.

Authorities have filed charges against the passengers, Antonio Murdock, 31, and Brianna Greco, 23, both from Florida.

Murdock faces criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and criminal trespass in the third degree.
