Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin was named the AFC special-teams player of the week, and he’ll receive the sheet of paper that goes along with it.
On Tuesday, McKelvin received a very different sheet of paper.
According to WIVB-TV, McKelvin was fined for disrupting a flight from New York to Buffalo. Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority spokesman Doug Hartmayer told WIVB that McKelvin refused repeated requests to turn off his phone and to place his baggage in the overheard compartment. Hartmayer also said there was an “incident” with the flight crew.
Though McKelvin was neither arrested nor detained, NFTA Police fined McKelvin $75 for interfering with a flight crew. Hartmayer said that McKelvin does not intend to contest the charges.
“I’m going to pay my fine and be on my ‘Ps’ and ‘Qs’ from now on,” McKelvin said, according to Hartmayer.
It’s possible that the incident could trigger a review under the league’s personal conduct policy. We’ve asked the league that question.
