Jonathan Rhys Meyers is causing problems again. At the airport. Again.
If fans of the actor recall, last September, Meyers was detained by security at Dublin Airport after staggering about and looking disheveled. Alcohol seems to have been the issue.
On Sunday, the Tudors star was detained again, this time at LAX. TMZ reports he was on an AmericanAirlines flight from (where else?) Miami with his wife and baby son Wolf when the couple began to argue midflight.
Apparently, the 40-year-old Irishman also was vaping, a no-no. Using an e-cigarette while up in the air is a federal violation and can result in a hefty fine.
Los Angeles Airport Police told DailyMail.com that officers received reports that Meyers was causing a mile high “disturbance,” and cops were waiting for him when his flight landed. Ultimately, the movie star, a recovering alcoholic, was not charged.
“Police met the plane at the gate. Police conducted a full investigation and found there was no domestic incident or smoking incident that had occurred and found that there was no crime,” read an LAPD police report.
Regardless, Meyers’ alleged, drunken tantrum meant passengers were left waiting on that very airplane for more than an hour.
It is unclear why the “Bend it Like Beckham” star, 40, was in South Florida. Maybe he wanted to check out David Beckham’s new soccer digs?
Back in 2007, it was more of the same for Meyers, who was arrested at Dublin Airport for the first time for public drunkenness.
