Investigators saw the plane land at Jones Riverside Airport about 8 p.m. and reportedly found it was piloted by [Badlands] McNally. They started a pilot certification inspection and McNally gave them his pilot credentials. While the credentials were being verified, investigators asked McNally where he was coming from.

He said he came from Watonga after visiting his family, but did not say he was at Lake Havasu City first. Investigators asked why he did not say he was at Lake Havasu City, but he could not provide an explanation, according to the affidavit.

McNally reportedly became defensive and agitated, and investigators asked if anyone asked him to transport anything for them.
