Washington, May 18 (ANI): Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was banned from boarding a United Airlines flight after he used racial slurs against an employee last month in a drunken outburst.
As per reports from RadarOnline.com, the Irish actor, star “The Tudors,” reportedly used the “N” word when he was reprimanded for drunk and disorderly conduct inside a first class lounge earlier this month, says Fox News.
Meyers was accused of drinking excessively in the wee hours at New York City’s JFK airport while waiting to board a flight to Los Angeles.
The employees didn’t allow him to get on the flight on seeing his quarrelsome behaviour, following which shouted the ‘N word’ at them.
This is not the first time Meyers has landed in trouble.
After his second stint in rehab, Meyers was arrested in 2007 at a Dublin airport for allegedly being drunk, but the charges were dropped later.
Two years later, just three months out of his third stint, he was arrested for allegedly attacking staff in a Paris airport bar. (ANI)
