Adam Wexler, a test paraglider who floated into Lebanon on Wednesday, was charged in the Safed Magistrate's Court on Thursday for disobeying a military order and the negligent operation of a flight vessel. Police said that paragliders require permits from the IDF and the civil aviation authorities before they are allowed to take off along the northern border. Wexler, police said, was intimately familiar with the regulations since he was a test paraglider for a commercial company Wexler's father, Dani, rejected the charges against his son. "I know the army," Dani told Army Radio. "And I know that my son would not have taken off without a permit from the IDF."
