Daniel Davillier, lawyer for NFL free agent Odell Beckham Jr., shared his client’s side of an incident in which he was escorted off a plane in Miami by police after failing to listen to flight attendants who told him to fasten his seat belt.
Miami-Dade Police Department released a statement via NFL Network that said Beckham was "in and out of consciousness" and that the flight attendants feared he was "seriously ill."
"At approximately 9:30 a.m., officers from Miami-Dade Police Department, were dispatched to a medical emergency at an American Airlines flight," police told NFL Network in a statement. "The flight crew was concerned for a passenger (Mr. Odell Beckham), as they tried to wake him to fasten his seat belt, he appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness, prior to their departure. Fearing that Mr. Beckham was seriously ill, and that his condition would worsen through the expected 5 hour flight, the attendants called for police and fire rescue. Upon the officers (sic) arrival, the flight crew asked Mr. Beckham several times to exit the aircraft, which he refused."
