Attorney Blames ‘Overzealous’ Flight Attendant

An attorney for Odell Beckham Jr. say the free-agent NFL star should not have been removed from a plane Sunday and that he was the victim of an "overzealous flight attendant."

  • Police said Beckham was removed from a Miami-to-Los Angeles after he “appeared to be in and out of consciousness.”
  • Early news reports said he refused to get off the plane until other passenger returned to the terminal but that Beckham was not charge for a crime in connection with the incident.
  • His former team, the Los Angeles Rams, are reportedly interested in rehire Beckham.
  • “The overzealous flight attendant insisted on removing everyone from the plane instead of simply allowing Mr. Beckham to fasten his seatbelt and proceed with the flight,” the attorney said. “At no time was Mr. Beckham disruptive or combative. He was willing to comply with the seatbelt requirement, but the flight attendant wanted to prove that he had the authority to have Mr. Beckham removed from the flight. … Sleeping on a plane should not be a cause for removal from a flight.”
