Pace Airlines Shuts Down Because of Vandalized Car (?); CEO Arrested

Pace Airlines, which you may remember as the operator of Hooters Air, was shut down last week after the CEO said he feared for workers’ safety when an executive’s car was vandalized.  I know, that doesn’t make sense.  It may also have something to do with Continental Airlines canceling a contract with them, and Direct Air not paying them nearly $2 million they owed Pace.  But the CEO said that he was suspending operations because of the vandalized car.

Then, the CEO of the airline, William Rodgers, was arrested and charged with not giving his employees 45 days notice before canceling their health insurance.

Amazingly, Hooters Air had nothing to do with the shut down.
