The NFL’s most intriguing free agent, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., had an incident on a flight in Miami that resulted in him being escorted off the plane by police.
Beckham was on American Airlines Flight 1228 with service from Miami to Los Angeles when flight attendants reportedly asked him to put on his seatbelt and noticed he was fainting and fainting. Beckham would not wear his seatbelt, said a statement from American Airlines via NFL Network.
Believing he had a medical condition, police said the wide receiver was asked to leave the flight, which he refused. The plane eventually returned to the gate, where all passengers disembarked before police escorted Beckham away.

Fearing that Mr. Beckham was critically ill and that his condition would worsen over the planned 5 hour flight, attendants called the police and fire department.When officers arrived, the flight crew repeatedly asked Mr. Beckham to get off the plane, which he refused.
“The aircraft was disembarked, at which time Mr. Beckham was asked by officers to exit the aircraft, and did so without incident. Mr. Beckham was escorted to the unsecured area of the terminal by the officers where he made other arrangements.”
