Redneck Ron -- There's a Rat on Tater Air

9/15/2008 5:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ron White says he's getting scalloped by a couple ex-pilots on his "Tater Air" private jet -- and that's why he got busted for pot last week. Ron White has his own jet?

Back in May, the two Tater pilots claimed a wasted Ron charged the cockpit and threatened to crash the plane. And now Ron tells the Atlanta Journal Constitution one of these guys dropped the dime on him, resulting in his arrest on the tarmac in Vero Beach.

Best part: White says post-arrest, he's making more money than ever.

This guy is a bum and an embarrasment to the Blue Colar Guys. I live in Vero Beach, and in the local paper he was complaining as if he was too good to be arrested. I can't imagine airline pilots making up this story for any other reason except the fact that White was endangering the flight while under the influence. Why guys like Foxworthy, Larry, and Engval put up with this booze swigging, swaggering, pot smoking loser is a mystery to me. He doesn't realize he has a problem, and he is the least funny of all of them.

If you are making more money than ever....then get some help. A drunken rampage I saw on You Tube turned me against this comedian. He was one of my favorites until I saw that.

I saw this jackass at the Laugh Factory a couple times, a few months ago and he is a wreck!.

His drunk act isn't an act. He was so wasted that he jacked up his jokes, spilled his booze down the front of his shirt (unaware of course) and never realized that we were laughing at him for being an unfunny sloppy drunk, not his lame act. He stumbled off the stage thinking he rocked. He drove home drunk that very night (saw the piece of that here on TMZ with video)

The second time again at the Laugh Factory, he bombed so badly and this time he knew it. You'd have thought we were to blame for him getting so loaded that he couldn't finish a joke. He caled us a few names and stomped off the stage, at which point some funnier guy came and picked up the unfunny slack.

Ron White is a loser and a boozer. I hope the police in Vero Beach bust his loaded azz.

He makes enough money doing THAT to own a private jet?! I'm in the wrong business.

Ok guys. I NEVER post comments, but this time I just have to.
I know Ron. He's not like that, these guys are just trying to get money, don't believe everything you read!
Ron is an easy target for people like this because he's so open and trusting. Hardly faults.

#5, Did he or did he not have marijuana on him??? If he did have pot on him then how is it the former pilots fault??? Last time I checked having pot on you is ILLEGAL in 50 states.......Maybe Ron's next CD or Comedy Special should be called " ACCOUNTABILITY".....

I've been an RW fan for years. His tours with the other guys, Foxworthy, Engvall and Larry, have been painfully funny; you laugh until your tummy hurts and you're crying. But we saw him, alone as the headliner, last year, here in California. He SO sucked. He was already drunk when he hit the stage. He continued to drink onstage. He counted on the audience to provide his trademark lines. Quite unfunny...on the other hand, we caught Bill Engvall in Reno last year - what a riot. Almost peed my pants

He is married to a rich woman.
A STUPID rich woman...but that is probably supplementing his income as a cappy comic.

to #1:

According to press reports Ron was quite cordial with the cops and even sent them pizza after he was sprung. he also took full responsibliity for violating Fla law. You dont know what the hell you're talking about, see this:

http://www.tcpalm.com/news/2008/sep/11/comedian-ron-white-vero-beach-no-ill-will/

Published reports about the pilots' complaints refer to them as disgruntled ex-employees who are suing for severance pay. They aren't "airline pilots" they were private pilots who were fired for not doing what their employer asked them too, That's why they complaiined, and I wish them luck getting hired by anyone else after they try to sue and rat out their former employer.. lol

Do a little research before you stat flapping your trap for all the world to see
