NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. was removed from an American Airlines flight on Nov. 27, set to leave Miami International Airport heading to Los Angeles.

Blavity reported airport officials said Beckham failed to respond to requests to buckle his seatbelt and appeared unconscious.

Miami Dade Police Officer Luis Sierra released a statement regarding the removal. “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 before their departure.

He added, “Fearing that Mr. Beckham was seriously ill, and that his condition would worsen through the expected five-hour flight, the attendants called for police and fire rescue. Upon the officers arrival, the flight crew asked Mr. Beckham several times to exit the aircraft, which he refused.”

Beckham shared a tweet in response to the outrageous situation.
