Postal copter pilot placed on admin leave, told to “stay away” from PO

The Tampa Bay Times reports that Doug Hughes, the rural carrier who last week landed his gyro-copter on the US Capitol lawn, has been told to “stay away” from the post office:

He called his employers at the Riverview Post Office to tell them he couldn’t come in Monday because he had to get fitted for his monitoring device but would be at work Tuesday. They told him he was on administrative leave pending investigation and to stay away.

    Bizarre…yes! Dangerous…highly doubt it! His methods were a bit extreme, but his intentions were honorable and patriotic! Some folks just wish they had the courage to do what he did!
