Charges dropped against man who landed his helicopter for ice cream

Charges have been dropped against a man who landed his helicopter in a parking lot to buy some ice cream at the Tisdale Dairy Queen this summer.

34 year old Reed McGrath from Leroy was charged in August with dangerous operation of an aircraft after RCMP received a complaint on July 31 of a helicopter landing in the parking lot blowing up dust and debris.

An investigation determined it was not an emergency landing.

A Melfort Crown prosecutor stayed the charges against McGrath last month. The Crown doesn’t have to state why they are staying charges
