Odell Beckham Jr. taken off American Airlines flight in Miami

NFL Free agent Odell Beckham Jr

MIAMI — Odell Beckham Jr. is in the news again and it's not because of an announcement about what team he's officially joining. On Sunday the NFL free agent was removed by police from an aircraft before takeoff at Miami International Airport after officials said he failed to respond to requests to buckle his seatbelt and appeared to be unconscious.

The star wide receiver was onboard a flight that was set to depart from Miami to Los Angeles on Sunday morning.

“Fearing that Mr. Beckham was seriously ill, and that his condition would worsen through the expected 5-hour flight, (flight crew members) called for police and fire rescue,” Miami Dade Police Officer Luis Sierra said in a statement following the 9:30 a.m. Sunday incident.

“As they tried to wake (Beckham) to fasten his seat belt, he appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness,” the statement added.

According to a CNN affiliate WVSN report, Miami-Dade police said officers were dispatched when the American Airlines flight crew was concerned for Beckham’s well-being.

American Airlines representative Alfredo Garduno confirmed that flight 1228 to Los Angeles returned to the gate before takeoff “due to a customer failing to follow crew members’ instructions and refusing to fasten their seat belt.”

“American Airlines flight 1228, with service from Miami (MIA) to Los Angeles (LAX), returned to the gate before takeoff due to a customer failing to follow crew member instructions and refusing to fasten their seatbelt,” American Airlines said in a statement and reported by CNN. "The customer was removed, and the flight re-departed at 10:54 a.m. local time."

Carlos Gauna, a passenger in business class, said he recognized Beckham before boarding the flight and later used his cellphone camera to record him walking through the airport terminal with police. He said Beckham had been seated in first class. 

“He just walked quietly. Police escorted him out,” Gauna said, adding that the flight was full and he heard “grumblings” among other passengers.

Beckham Jr. who was recently linked with Dallas Cowboys, is currently a free agent in the NFL as he continues to recover from surgery to repair a knee injury suffered in Super Bowl LVI. He was a member of the Los Angeles Rams in February.
