Police Report released from Odell Beckham incident that got him kicked off American Airlines Flight.

Details are emerging by the second, as we are getting a clearer picture of exactly what happened on that American Airlines flight that got Odell Beckham Jr. escorted away by police.

According to a press release from the Miami-Dade Police, officers were called at 9:30 am for a “medical emergency” on the flight. The airlines crew was “concerned” about the health of Odell Beckham Jr., as he was “coming in and out of consciousness” when they tried to get him to put his seatbelt on prior to takeoff.

Afraid that Beckham’s condition could become worst during the five-hour flight to Los Angeles, the flight crew called for police and fire rescue to escort him off the plane. Beckham initially refused to leave the plane, but was eventually escorted off by officers “without incident.”

Here’s the police statement:

Beckham made a vague reference to the incident in a series of tweets on Sunday. “Never in my life have I experienced what just happened to me… I’ve seen it alll,” he wrote. “I COULD NEVER MAKE THIS UP.”

Beckham is currently be pursued by several teams, who want to sign the free agent WR. This incident could change the minds of those teams.
