According to NFTA Spokesman Doug Hartmayer, Bills Cornerback Leodis McKelvin was repeatedly asked to turn off his cellphone and place baggage in the overhead compartment. Hartmayer says McKelvin refused to comply and at some point there was an incident with the flight crew.
McKelvin was met at the gate in Buffalo by NFTA Police, who issued him a Notice of Violation for interfering with a flight crew, which carries a $75 fine. Hartmayer says McKelvin was not arrested or detained.
“Based on the circumstances and Mr. McKelvin, and my understanding was cooperative, and all that was warranted was the issuing of a Notice of Violation,” Hartmayer said.
McKelvin had a big game last week against the Dolphins, where he returned a punt return for a touchdown. I wonder what caused him to give Delta a hard time.
