According to the outlet, Carlson drove his Ford Mustang from the runway to a grassy area, where he did doughnuts, before speeding into an open hangar, where he continued doing doughnuts until police arrived.

“We don’t know what he was thinking, we don’t believe that alcohol was involved," Officer Mike Wood with the Pensacola Police Dept. said of the scene, as per Fox 10 News. "The best that we have from him is he just felt like driving on the runway.”
