Former Alaska Airlines pilot released from custody, can't board another plane

A federal judge has allowed a former Alaska Airlines pilot from Pleasant Hill accused of trying to cut the engines of a Horizon Air flight to be released from custody, as long as he follows a set of rules. U.S. Magistrate Stacie F. Beckerman on Wednesday allowed Joseph Emerson, 44, to leave custody in Multnomah County with a set of strict conditions, such as forbidding him to use any drugs like cannabis or psilocybin mushrooms or boarding any "operable aircraft."
