Pilots immediately alerted Denver International Airport and landed the plane on an isolated runway.
Korth has yet to be formally charged but in court on Tuesday he was released to a halfway house where he will likely remain until he is sentenced.

When the judge asked Korth, “Anything you’d like to say about the incident?” Korth replied, “Not at this time.”
Korth’s defense told the judge that he has serious mental health issues for which he takes medication but said he wasn’t on his medication at the time of the flight.
According to court documents, Korth told investigators he was in the middle of a panic attack and wrote the note to get attention for his problems. He also said that it was an impulsive act with no thought process behind it.

On Tuesday, the judge made sure Korth understood that medication compliance was a big part of his release conditions.
Korth is facing charges of maliciously conveying false information which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He will likely be formally charged later this week.
His preliminary hearing is set for next week – http://cbsloc.al/2jn5ciq
