According to Deadspin, a tipster of their’s informed them that Jets quarterback Geno Smith was escorted out of a Virgin American flight terminal at Los Angeles International Airport after getting into a verbal altercation with police.
We were waiting for our flight at LAX to Vegas and were put on standby on Virgin American just like Geno. We were told to get seat assignment at 2:40. Apparently Geno was not on board with that. My friend walked over to discuss seat assignment and Geno was saying to airline ticket agents, “Fuck that, this is bullshit.” “Why the fuck do I have to wait until 2:40.” He would not let it go. He continued to curse and be loud for about 5 minutes. Police were called. They talked for a few minutes and then 3 officers escorted him out of the terminal.
Someone on Twitter also reported the incident.
@JimmyTraina I don’t have video, but I’m at LAX and just saw a Geno Smith fiasco yelling at Virgin America workers. Escorted by cops LOL
