    A charter plane pilot was abruptly grounded Thursday at a Michigan airport after police discovered he was allegedly too drunk to fly, NBC News reported. 

    The captain of the plane notified the Cherry Capital Airport tower in Traverse City that there was something wrong with his co-pilot as he prepared to land. 

    When police arrived, the co-pilot was at the controls and preparing to take off for Bedford, Massachusetts, with a dozen passengers on board. 

    The co-pilot, who was not named, was fired from Talon Air. Police said he was arrested after registering a blood alcohol content of .30 — four times the legal limit for driving a car.
