August A. Busch IV Arrested After Trying To Fly Helicopter While Appearing Intoxicated

Swansea, IL  (KTRS)  August A. Busch IV was arrested in Swansea after trying to fly his helicopter while appearing to be intoxicated.

Authorities say police received a call Monday afternoon about a helicopter parked in a parking lot at a of the Bronze Pointe Office Park. Several hours later, police were called again when Busch reportedly was attempting to leave in his helicopter.

Officers administered a Field Sobriety Test after Busch. According to court records, Busch  “intoxicated,” “anxious,” “rambling” and “unable to keep a single train of thought.” Police did recover weapons and prescription drugs.

The “St. Louis Post Dispatch” reports a breath test showed Busch had no alcohol in his system. However, Busch was held by Swansea police overnight on suspicion of reckless conduct, unlawful use of a weapon and being intoxicated “in or about an aircraft.” He was released on Tuesday.

No charges have been filed as the case is still being investigated. The F-A-A has also been called in to investigate.
