'Charmed' Star -- Drunk, Disorderly, Busted at Airport

11/1/2010 4:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brian Krause -- who played Leo on the TV show "Charmed" -- was yanked off a jetway and arrested at LAX last night after airline employees claimed he was too hammered and too disruptive to fly.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Krause was trying to board an AirTran flight at LAX when the plane's captain felt he was too drunk to board the plane ... and ordered airline staff to turn him away.

We're told Krause refused to leave -- and began arguing with employees. Cops were called to the terminal and Krause was eventually arrested for being drunk in public.

Krause was taken to a nearby jail -- where he spent the night sobering up behind bars. We're told he was released today sometime after 7:00 AM.

So far, Krause's people have no comment on the situation.

@#4- Nothing I hate more than ignorant violent sad excuses for human beings with anger management issues suggesting anyone who does something wrong should get physically assaulted.

Wow - having to fly AirTran. His career must have died right after Charmed.

OooooNooo!    

No naked porn star locked in the airplane toilet? Seems like Air Tran Airlines over reacted -- or maybe they never had to fly a REAL Hollyweird star!

Actors are the most insecure people ever that is why they are so good at acting. it is easier to be someonelse than themselves. So the more beleiveable the character the crazier the person. (Tom Cruz) Anyway, he is older probably not getting roles anymore and just depressed and this is the diminished result.

My Aunt would always say the reason not to do drugs, "If you drink and party hard, eventually you will look like you were rode hard, and put up wet. That will age a person and horse."

Oh no...we should check with the elders and see what we can do! Maybe there's something in the Book of Shadows that can help!

Sorry...bored & couldn't resist.

Leave Brian alone people!! I know Brian and he doesn't have a problem with drinking, just has anxiety of flying. He probably had a couple of drinks to help with the anxiety and because he's a public figure he was pointed out. How many of you would get a little loud if they said you couldn't sit on a plane after going through airport security and all the rest that you have to do these days just to fly. He wasn't flying the plane he would have gotten on the plane and slept!

If they don't want this to happen - then stop selling alcoholic drinks at the airport. NO WAY is that going to happen - selling alcohol in the bars is a huge moneymaker for the airports.
