Lamar Odom Booted Off Plane, After Drunkenly Booting on Plane
According to TMZ, Odom was kicked off of a New York City-bound plane departing from LAX last night (July 11) after vomiting on himself after allegedly drinking too much at the airport bar beforehand. The site claims Odom was tossing back beers and whiskeys at the Delta lounge before boarding, and just as the plane was set to approach the runway, Lamar ran toward the bathroom, threw up before entering and then vomited again once on board.
Odom was politely removed from the flight with his belongings as crews cleaned up the mess. But about 10 minutes later, Odom returned — still soiled with vomit — and took his seat again. Soon he got up to puke once more, using the heads of his fellow passengers to steady himself as he approached the bathroom.
Finally, he was more permanently removed from the flight, which arrived to its destination nearly an hour late.
For Odom's fellow passengers, it was a scary reminder that the basketball player has a troubled past with substance abuse. One passenger reportedly told flight staff "Don't you know his history? I don't want a dead body at 30,000 feet."
