Love soars, then goes sour on Alaska flight

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A flight that started with kisses and coos on
Valentine's Day ended with a drive to jail for two Anchorage men and
an Olympia woman.

Flight attendants Friday were caught in the middle of a budding
relationship turned sour between Robert G. Radder and Dollie L. Drape
on Alaska Air Flight 181 from Seattle to Anchorage. Gregory L.
Alexander, another passenger, helped accommodate the romance but later
erupted in anger. Now all face federal charges of interfering with a
flight crew, a felony.

The three were held over the weekend at Cook Inlet Pre-Trial Facility
and made their first appearance Tuesday in U.S. District Court.

The attraction apparently was instantaneous between Radder and Drape
at Sea-Tac Airport, where they met that day, said Eric Gonzalez, FBI
spokesman. The lure was so strong that the two asked to be seated
together on the flight to Anchorage.

Alexander, 41, was seated next to Drape, so flight attendants asked
him to change seats with Radder, Gonzalez said.

Radder, 26, and Drape, 29, began kissing and saying "I love you" and
"Be my valentine," Gonzalez said. But the romance fizzled and they
began arguing.

The pair got louder, swearing at each other, so a flight attendant
asked them to calm down, Gonzalez said. A passenger also told them to
shut up, the affidavit said. Radder challenged the passenger to a

Flight attendants turned to Alexander, who was sleeping, to solve the
fight. They woke him and asked if he would swap seats with Radder
again, Gonzalez said.

But that set Alexander off, the affidavit said.

He changed seats then got up and closed in on flight attendant Kira
Freeman near the cockpit, yelling and pushing forward until she was
backed into a corner, the affidavit said.
