Steven Slater: I Need A Nap (VIDEO)

On Wednesday morning, The New York Times scored an interview with runaway JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater
in the elevator of the Upper East Side apartment building where he's been staying.

When asked if he had planned to use the emergency chute, Slater laughed "Oh, we thought about it for 20 years...but you never think you're going to do it." He also confessed he "needs a good nap."
