Actor Josh Duhamel Kicked Off Plane for Not Turning Off BlackBerry
"He's sorry," his rep says, adding that he was texting about the flight delay.
Life as We Know It star Josh Duhamel was kicked off plane in New York City Thursday when he refused to turn off his BlackBerry.
A passenger on the flight -- which was departing LaGuardia Airport to Kentucky -- tells TMZ.com, which first reported the story, that Duhamel was "very rude" and "taunting the attendant."
The flight attendant reportedly asked Duhamel three times to turn off his BlackBerry, and he laughed at her third request.
Growing angry, the flight attendant called for backup, and the plane -- which was already on the runway -- turned back to the gate. Two officers escorted Duhamel off, further delaying the flight and infuriating the other passengers.
A rep for the actor says Duhamel was texting on his BlackBerry about his flight being late. "He's sorry," the rep adds.
