Odell Beckham Jr. caused a bit of a stir on social media on Sunday, firing off some cryptic tweets over an apparent incident that occurred that morning. Shortly after, a video of Beckham Jr. being escorted through what was reportedly Miami airport by security guards emerged online, suggesting that was what the free-agent wide receiver had been tweeting about. A video posted by another American Airlines passenger on Sunday showed Beckham being led away by three members of airport security.

The Twitter user who provided the video, Chris Daly, indicated that he was waiting to take off on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles. The plane was reportedly taxiing before returning to the gate “because of a problem.”

NFL insider Tom Pelissero shared the full report of the airport incident, via the Miami-Dade Police Department. In the statement from police, it was reported that Beckham refused to fasten his seatbelt and “appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness” before the plane took off.

Flight attendants called for emergency services out of fear that Beckham Jr.’s condition would worsen during the five-hour flight from Miami to Los Angeles. He was reportedly asked to leave the aircraft several times, refusing each time, before the plane had to be entirely de-boarded.
