JetBlue Guy Decides Story Wasn't Already Awesome Enough So Gets Arrested While Having Sex With His Boyfriend

The JetBlue Guy already gave so much.

So, he got into a dispute with a traveler about his overhead luggage. Words were exchanged.

To the passenger who called me a m-fer, f- you, flight attendant Steven Slater ranted over the intercom, passengers said.

Ive been in the business 28 years. Ive had it. Thats it.

He then grabbed two beers from the galley, popped the emergency door and deployed the emergency chute, slid down the chute, and ran to his car (in a nearby lot).

He was arrested for... well, they didn't have a specific charge for freaking out like a crazyperson so they got him for criminal vandalism.

So, that's what he gave for the Internet.

But, like James Brown pushing away the cape, he's got more show in him.

"I wish we could all quit our jobs like that," said passenger Phil Catelinet, 36, of Brooklyn, who was on the flight and the AirTrain.

"He seemed kind of happy about it. He was like, 'I just quit my job.' "

Port Authority police said it took jetBlue 25 minutes to report the incident, allowing Slater time to leave the scene.

Cops found him in bed with his boyfriend when they arrived to arrest him at a beachfront home in the Rockaways with a porch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, sources said.

He boasted to skeptical cops that he really did escape by chute with his carry-on luggage.

"Oh, yes, I did! I threw them down first and I went down after," he told cops, sources said.

He was grinning as police walked him in handcuffs to a squad car. "He left with a big smile on his face," said neighbor Curt Karkowski.

Yes, he will have a reality show or an infomercial. It will be called "I've Had It! with Steve "Chutey" Slater."

They aren't kidding about the big smile, either:

Not a big smile there but you can see it. A man at peace.

Not only is he under stress because his mother is dying of lung cancer, but apparently... he took a bit of time off before.

JetBlue would not say how long Slater had worked for the airline, but he wrote on his MySpace page that he was "enjoying being back in the skies" after a five-year break.

A five year break? There is more to this story. That time period sounds suspiciously court-ordered.

Hopefully, they'll be extending it to include the full getaway and arrest at some point.
