    Jets quarterback Geno Smith was apparently escorted off a Virgin America flight at LAX today by police after what a witness called a "verbal altercation."

    The photo you see above was sent to us by a reader who witnessed the incident and says the shot came "moments before" Smith was escorted out of the airport by cops. Our tipster wasn't the only person who saw it:


    We're working on getting more details, but it looks like Geno's weekend isn't off to a great start.

    Update (7:11 p.m.): Our tipster fills in some details:

    We were waiting for our flight at LAX to Vegas and were put on standby on Virgin American just like Geno. We were told to get seat assignment at 2:40. Apparently Geno was not on board with that. My friend walked over to discuss seat assignment and Geno was saying to airline ticket agents, "**** that, this is ********." "Why the **** do I have to wait until 2:40." He would not let it go. He continued to curse and be loud for about 5 minutes. Police were called. They talked for a few minutes and then 3 officers escorted him out of the terminal.

    "Sir, you also threw 21 INT's"

    "**** that! Don't matter. 12 TD's. 12!"

    That is tame compared to some of the things I have heard spewed towards customer service agents.

    My favorite was watching this guy explode because his flight was delayed because the plane was circling to avoid coming down in a severe thunderstorm.

    Virgin America apologizes to Geno Smith for incident on plane


    Jets quarterback Geno Smith landed in the news last week after he left a plane following a disagreement with a flight attendant over headphones.

    At the time, the Jets said they were looking into the incident. The company that owns the jet that Smith departed was also looking into what happened and Virgin America released a statement on Thursday offering their apologies to Smith.

    “After a full review of the incident, we believe it was the result of a misunderstanding that regrettably escalated unnecessarily. We’ve apologized to Mr. Smith for his experience, which could have been better — and we’d welcome him back onboard any time. As an airline that prides itself on our guest service, we take incidents such as this one very seriously.”

    Smith also released a statement thanking the company.

    “I really appreciate that Virgin America took this seriously, looked into this matter and followed up with me. I look forward to flying their airline again soon.”

    And that brings us to the end of this chapter in Smith’s rookie season. Hopefully all involved will find the friendlier skies a bit friendlier the next time they take flight.
