    NEW YORK – A JetBlue flight attendant got into an argument with a passenger on a jetliner arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Monday, cursed the passenger, grabbed a beer from the galley and then deployed an emergency exit slide and fled the plane, authorities said.

    Flight attendant Steven Slater was arrested at his nearby home in the Belle Harbor section of Queens by Port Authority of New York And New Jersey police on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and trespassing.

    Slater, 39, remained in custody Monday night. His attorney's name wasn't immediately available, and there was no home telephone number listed for him. A woman who answered a phone at a previous residence listed for Slater in Thousand Oaks, Calif., identified herself as his mother but said she wasn't speaking to the media.

    JetBlue Airways Corp. said in a statement that it was working with the Federal Aviation Administration and Port Authority police to investigate the matter. It said the safety of its customers and crew members was never at risk.

    Slater was working on JetBlue Flight 1052 from Pittsburgh when he got into an argument with the passenger, who was pulling down baggage from an overhead bin, the Port Authority said. The luggage apparently struck the attendant in the head and he asked for an apology, but the passenger refused, the agency said.

    As the plane was landing, Slater got on the public-address system and cussed at the passenger, the Port Authority said. He then grabbed at least one beer, activated the slide, slid down and went to his car, it said.

    Port Authority police were notified about 25 minutes later.

    JetBlue would not say how long Slater had been employed by the company.

    By Monday night, several Facebook pages had been set up in tribute to Slater, with many users of the social networking site expressing support for him for walking off the job.

    passengers push those ppl too far treat them like glorified maids. You on their aircraft and they have rules. you knock the man in his freaking head cos you ain wanna listen then you are rude enough not to apologize?????
    nah

    just sit yuh ass down and wait for the plane to come to a stop.

    nothing wrong with tellin the passenger off via intercom...you got frustrated , but the beer then deploying the emerg. exit... that was way extra

    if you do that thats like giving the finger and saying I quit!

    No lie on that. I thought about becoming one before, but I don't have the temprement. Don't think I could explain away why I smothered several passagers with the little pillows.

    "To the f-----g a--hole who told me to f--k off, it's been a good 28 years," Slater, 38, purred, cops said. "I've had it. That's it," he added, a passenger said.

    The mad-as-hell steward grabbed a couple of brewskis and popped one open before activating the emergency exit, witnesses told airport employees.

    After tossing his two carry-on bags on the slide, he followed them to the tarmac. : this is like a frickin movie. dude does have flair

    Slater - who actually first started working for airlines 20 years ago, not 28 - then walked to the AirTrain, stripped off his company tie and flung it off as bemused passengers watched.

    "I wish we could all quit our jobs like that," said passenger Phil Catelinet, 36, of Brooklyn, who was on the flight and the AirTrain.

    "He seemed kind of happy about it. He was like, 'I just quit my job.' "


    Port Authority police said it took jetBlue 25 minutes to report the incident, allowing Slater time to leave the scene. : good to know esp if there is a terrorist threat on that airline

    Cops found him in bed with his boyfriend when they arrived to arrest him at a beachfront home in the Rockaways with a porch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, sources said.

    He boasted to skeptical cops that he really did escape by chute with his carry-on luggage.

    "Oh, yes, I did! I threw them down first and I went down after," he told cops, sources said.

    He was grinning as police walked him in handcuffs to a squad car. "He left with a big smile on his face," said neighbor Curt Karkowski.

    Slater was wearing a sheepish smile when Port Authority detectives walked him to a waiting van a few hours later. He was charged with reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.

    JetBlue would not say how long Slater had worked for the airline, but he wrote on his MySpace page that he was "enjoying being back in the skies" after a five-year break.

    "I love to max it out with trips around the world, sometimes on a moment's notice!" he gushed.
    : this dude!
    Neighbors described Slater as a nice guy, but said he was under some stress. "Steven's mother is dying," said Judy Rochelle, whose son Kenny lives with Slater. "She has lung cancer. She's had two chemos and the prognosis is not good. They were on their way out to California this weekend to settle her affairs."
