This guy has some balls LOL

Prosecutors on Thursday charged a former Oceanside resident with stealing a small plane from an airfield near San Diego and making an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport.

San Diego County prosecutors charged Skye Turner with felony counts of stealing an aircraft, grand theft and burglary. The 23-year-old, who is set to be arraigned this afternoon, faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

Turner was arrested Feb. 19 after landing the Cirrus SR22, which was reported stolen from Montgomery Field.

The Federal Aviation Administration says Turner had an expired student pilot license.

His father, Peter Turner of Oceanside, told NBC 7/39 last week that his son, who now lives in El Cajon, spent countless hours playing flight-simulator games on the computer and had been rejected from at least one flight school
