Toilet paper tossed from plane at NJ school

Authorities say a man tossed wet toilet paper from a small plane onto a New Jersey athletic field, but his intent wasn't nefarious: He was making a test run for a streamer drop at an upcoming high school football game.

Westwood Police Chief Frank Regino tells The Record of Woodland Park that Wednesday's fly-over stirred anxieties about low-flying aircraft.

The pilot, Warren Saunders, has been charged with violating a state law that prohibits aerial stunts over densely inhabited areas or public gatherings. He's been released on his own recognizance.

Regino says Saunders was practicing to drop streamers in school colors before Westwood High School's football game Saturday.

Saunders could not be reached for comment. There is no published telephone listing for his Westwood address.
