Regarded for months as an automotive menace by former NFL players Keyshawn Johnson and Eric Dickerson, pop star Justin Bieber allegedly has become an imp of the airspace.
According to CNN, the FAA is investigation allegations that passengers aboard Bieber’s Super Bowl charter interfered with the flight crew and smoked pot on the plane.
Citing law enforcement sources, CNN reports that Bieber and his father were “extremely abusive verbally” to a flight attendant on a chartered Gulfstream IV that flew from Ontario to Teterboro airport in New Jersey last Friday. A report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection contends that Bieber Jr. and Bieber Sr. also refused repeated warnings from the pilot to stop smoking marijuana.
The pilots used oxygen masks to avoid inhaling the fumes.
No drugs were found when the plane landed, presumably because they had all been smoked. Federal agents detected the smell of marijuana on the aircraft.
After being detained for several hours, Bieber and his 10-person entourage were permitted to re-enter the United States.
Bieber has built quite a rap sheet in recent months. He has been arrested for drunk driving in Miami and for assault in Toronto. He also could face felony vandalism charges for egging a neighbor’s house in January.
