Odell Beckham kicked off plane after he was ‘in and out of consciousness’

Free agent wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was kicked off of a plane in Miami Sunday morning, the Miami-Dade Police Department said.

According to a police statement to NFL Network, the flight crew was worried about Beckham because “as they tried to wake him to fasten his seat belt, he appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness,” and officers were sent to respond to a “medical emergency” on the American Airlines flight bound for Los Angeles.

Police were called because the crew was concerned Beckham “was seriously ill” and that his condition might worsen during the flight, according to the statement. Beckham “refused” to get off the plane when asked by the flight crew, and all passengers were forced to deplane. Beckham then complied with officers’ request to exit the plane “without incident,” per police.

Beckham, 30, wasn’t detained or cited after the incident, NFL Network reported.

In a Twitter thread, a person who said they were on the plane with Beckham wrote the plane was taxiing down the runway but returned to the gate due to a problem. Police entered the plane and after 20 minutes, an announcement was made that everyone had to get off the plane with their luggage.

Beckham made a vague reference to the incident in a series of tweets on Sunday.

“Never in my life have I experienced what just happened to me… I’ve seen it alll,” he wrote. “I COULD NEVER MAKE THIS UP.”

The incident comes at a time when Beckham is setting dates to meet with NFL teams after being sidelined for much of the year as he recovered from a torn ACL. He’s set to meet with the Giants on Thursday and the Cowboys on Dec. 5, and he’ll also meet with the Bills. The Giants have been made aware of the situation and are going forward with the meeting on Thursday.
