TMZ is reporting that Big & Rich singer John Rich was kicked off a Southwest flight yesterday for being under the influence of alcohol. He was flying from Las Vegas to Nashville when the flight crew decided he was too drunk to fly with them at 10:50 AM local time.
TMZ is also reporting that John got into a verbal argument with some passengers before boarding the plane. They also say that John was calm and co-operative when he was asked to leave the flight by the crew and left without an incident.
A representative from Southwest confirmed to TMZ that a passenger was escorted off the flight, but they will not name who it was. The representative also confirms that the passenger was booked on a later flight and did make it.
