Bobby Brown Escorted Off Plane Amid Allegations of Flying While Drunk
Words by Jessica Dupree
The King of R&B Bobby Brown is in the news again, this time for an alleged altercation on a Jet Blue flight from Los Angeles to Boston.
TMZ reports that Brown, who had a first-class ticket traveling from LA to Boston to attend a relative’s funeral, was removed after flight crew members observed what they believed to be “signs of intoxication.” Brown allegedly admitted to drinking alcohol prior to boarding the aircraft.
Brown is said to have turned down the option to board a later flight, and accepted a refund instead. Sources say the flight was delayed one hour as passengers were ordered off the plane while police questioned Brown. Brown has not responded to requests for a comment on the incident and it is unknown as to whether he was taken into custody.
The singer resides in LA with his wife Alicia Etheridge and their children Bodhi, Cassius, and Hendrix.
