Judge dismisses indecent exposure charge against pilot

DENVER | A judge has dismissed an indecent exposure charge against a United Airlines pilot in Denver.

Denver District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Carolyn Tyler said Friday that prosecutors decided to drop the case against Andrew Collins because there wasn’t a reasonable likelihood of conviction at trial.

Collins was arrested in September after being accused of standing naked in front of his 10th-floor hotel window overlooking the Denver International Airport terminal. He pleaded not guilty.

His attorney, Craig Silverman, previously that it’s not a crime to be naked in a hotel room in Denver and that Collins didn’t know that people could see him when he partially opened the curtains.

The Denver Post reports the incident led to a six-month suspension for the 22-year pilot of Leesburg, Virginia.
