Tragic details unfold in a former MLB star’s death as video from his plane crash surfaces

On Wednesday, popular Boston radio host Michael Felger generated controversy with his comments about the death of former Major League Baseball pitcher Roy Halladay.

"If I die helicopter skiing, you have the right out there to do the exact same thing I'm doing to Roy Halladay", Felger said.

At one point Felger said: "He's not a militarily-trained pilot, he's not a professionally-trained pilot, he's a Joe Q. Citizen who buys a plane that folds up and you can put in your garage and that's amphibious, 'Wheee!" "To say it was over the top, or insensitive, is really stating the obvious". What I've gotten I deserve. "Moron. I find that offensive, that you are that cavalier about life".

OJ Simpson Thrown Out And Banned From Cosmopolitan Hotel In Las Vegas
The Juice got loose at a Las Vegas hotel - getting booted after a scuffle at the bar late Wednesday, according to a report . Simpson allegedly became "unruly" and yelled at hotel staff and knocked glasses off the bar which shattered on the floor.

He said Halladay's family is dealing with enough, and didn't need to deal with inflammatory comments.

Felger also apologized to his coworkers for having to "answer for my poor judgment" over the past 24 hours.

Attempts to immediately reach station management today were unsuccessful.

Guest speaker will be Alice Kraatz, 12, who initiated the effort to include MI with other states that have a Vietnam Veterans Day. At 11 a.m., the 16th annual Elk Grove Veterans Day Parade will proceed south on Elk Grove Florin Road to Elk Grove Regional Park.

Felger apologized to Halladay's family and to his co-workers at NBC Sports. But since that's the one that's at the front of everyone's mind and everyone's lips, I just thought I'd play that little piece for you. "Your little joyride is that important to you that you're going to risk just dying?" I'm Maverick. Pew, Pew! "Splat, and it's over". In doing so, Felger called Halladay a "moron" and an "idiot", among other things.

Felger did admit he meant some of what he said about Halladay, whom he believes was too cavalier while flying his plane, but added his delivery was disgusting and insensitive. He was reportedly performing stunts before the crash. He was 40. Halladay carved out an exceptional career with the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies, winning two Cy Young awards and making eight All-Star teams over 16 seasons. He was a married father of two children. "I got no sympathy for you".

Even more incredibly, one of Felger's shots delivered on Wednesday landed on the late NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr., who died in a crash at the Daytona 500 in 2001.
