      Man confesses to stealing, crashing plane
      05:41 PM CST on Tuesday, March 2, 2004
      From 11 News Staff Reports

      Brazoria County Sheriff’s detectives have arrested a man accused of
      stealing an airplane and crashing it into a field.
      Louis Paul Kadlecek, 21, faces a third-degree felony for stealing the
      small airplane from the Brazoria County Airport Sunday morning. He
      crashed it into power lines minutes after takeoff, but walked way.
      Tips from the public led deputies to Kadlecek after a two-day manhunt
      went on. Detectives say he surrendered without incident and confessed.

      “He had taxied one airplane around the airport, just taking it on a ride
      around the airport,” said Chief Deputy Charles Wagner from the Brazoria
      County Sheriff’s Department.

      “He brought it back, parked it, got into this one and was just taxiing it
      around the airport when all of a sudden he said, why not go for it? He
      revved the engine up and he thought it was revved up enough. He pulled
      back on it and it took off. Taking off is not that hard. It’s getting
      down that’s the problem.”

      Investigators say, Kadlecek had never even been in an airplane before,
      and had been drinking late Saturday night and into early Sunday morning.
      Investigators also say they found an 18-pack of cold beer and an opened
      owner’s manual inside the airplane.

      Kadlecek is expected to be arraigned Tuesday morning in Brazoria County.
