Josh Duhamel

Kicked Off Plane in NYC

12/3/2010 7:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Josh Duhamel was escorted off of a plane yesterday after he refused to turn off his BlackBerry ... sources tell TMZ.

We're told Duhamel was on a flight from New York (LGA) to Kentucky -- when, according to sources, the flight attendant asked Duhamel to turn off his BlackBerry before takeoff ... but he refused.

One passenger tells us Duhamel was "very rude" and "taunting the attendant."

We're told the flight attendant asked Josh to turn off the device three separate times -- and on the third time Josh laughed at his request.

We're told Duhamel's reaction infuriated the attendant, who then called for backup -- and the plane, which was already on the runway, was turned back to the gate.

Two US Airways reps eventually boarded the plane and escorted Duhamel off of the aircraft.

We're told passengers were pissed -- because the incident further delayed the flight.

Before boarding the plane, we're told Josh was in the airport bar watching the Cleveland/Miami game.

Duhamel's rep told TMZ Josh was texting on his BlackBerry about his flight being delayed.  The rep adds, "He's sorry."

what these moron's don't get is you only have to turn off the "radio" signal (meaning you can still use the device but doesn't pull snay messages or internet, or let you make phone calls) which is EASY to do on a blackberry.

The last flight I was on, when they came by to chastise me about it, i told them the radio was off and i was only using it to watch a movie and listen to music. They didn't even ask to see it, they were satisfied with my answer and walked away

Fergie is actually too good for him. He was all pouty walkin garound NYS with her when fans kept calling her name in public. He probably is a bit insecure and jealous. I feel bad for Fergie, she is always sweet.

I have no idea who this turd is. However, if he caused me the delay or to miss a connecting flight, he would have that Blackberry in his Brownhole.
