I had another opportunity to talk to our informant on Saturday about the ‘Pitt Stop’ at International Falls Airport, and our conversation helped to lend some more context to the situation.
The information she gathered from her friend who works at the airport was simply that they could hear the arguing on the plane before the doors opened. When Brad Pitt got off the plane, he relieved himself on the wall of the airport on the tarmac, he got into a truck and reversed it into someone’s car on the tarmac, causing damage.
The question remains, why would this type of erratic behavior not have been reported?
Our informant, who has spent a lot of time in International Falls, explains, “they start partying on a Wednesday and to see someone drunk like that, it’s not a big deal.” She continues, “it’s a crazy environment. It’s 70 miles to the nearest larger town, so they’ve got nothing. So this is nothing to them. It’s like, yeah, that happened to David out on the side of the building at Island View… it’s what they’re used to.”
She says that even the people in town don’t know that the International Falls Airport is used so frequently for high profile guests.
“It’s 7 miles out of town, so they don’t know. [High profile guests] get off, they get checked through customs… they call two hours ahead of time, say they’re going to land, the guys from the [Canadian] border go right out the airport, they check them out, they fuel up, and then they leave, nobody even knows.”
She mentioned that they don’t even have to get off the plane.
As far as what happened next, we don’t have those details, yet. But our source maintains, “all those boys up there, they all know the cops. So you know, they wouldn’t turn someone in. They wouldn’t. It’s just not in their nature.”
