Chris Christie upsetGovernor Chris Christie arrived at his son’s baseball game in a New Jersey State Police helicopter last Tuesday. It’s said the ruckus distracted spectators as the 55-foot long helicopter buzzed overhead, circled the outfield and finally landed in a football field nearby. Christie then was driven 100 yards to the baseball field. Later, during the fifth inning, Christie and wife were driven back to the helicopter while all play was halted until the helicopter took off.

Christie’s son was the starting catcher for Delbarton High School. The game was held in Bergen County. Christie watched the game flanked by State Police security guards.

A spokesman for Christie said, “It is a means of transportation that is occasionally used as the schedule demands, this has historically been the case in prior administrations as well, and we continue to be judicious in limiting its use.”

The brand new helicopter was purchased for $12.5 million at the cost of taxpayers, and can reach 200 miles an hour. The cost to transport is in excess of $2,000 per hour say some sources in New Jersey state government. The helicopter was purchased they say for homeland security and to transport critically injured patients in New Jersey. Sources say the governor left in the fifth inning to make a pre planned meeting with visiting Iowa Republicans. The meeting was scheduled in Princeton at the governor’s residence.
