BOULDER CITY, Nev. (AP) — Bail was set at $101,000 cash for a Henderson man accused of taking a small plane on a drunken joyride for midnight touch-and-go landings at Boulder City Municipal Airport.

Boulder City Justice Court clerk Nancy Spilker says Paul Michael Weddle made an initial appearance Tuesday by closed-circuit video before Searchlight Justice of the Peace Richard Hill.

Weddle is due again in court March 11 in Boulder City Justice Court on charges including piloting an aircraft under the influence and taking a vehicle without the owner's consent.

It's not clear if Weddle has an attorney.

The 47-year-old Weddle was jailed in Las Vegas after his arrest early Monday.

He was identified as a former employee of the plane owner, Scenic Airlines.

Police said Weddle's blood-alcohol level was measured at 0.13 percent.
