Star arrested after embarrassing airplane drama

Missing your flight is probably one of the most frustrating things ever, but we can honestly say that we have never resorted to these desperate measures.

Music star Jeremih has reportedly been jailed for trying to illegally board a flight after it had closed.

According to reports, the 27-year-old was late catching his flight from New Jersey to Phoenix yesterday, and decided to call in a rather inappropriate favour from his bodyguard Dontate Cunningham, who was already on board the flight.

The Wanna Get Up singer is said to have contacted Cunningham to come to his aid, with the bodyguard managing to force open the closed jet way door in a bid to get Jeremih and another buddy on the plane.

If they thought airport authorities took kindly to passengers coming and going at will like that, they were sorely mistaken!

The star, real name Jeremih Felton, was apprehended by police immediately and has been charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of the law.

His friend has been charged on the same count, while bodyguard Cunningham was arrested and charged with defiant trespass.

Perhaps they should just take the ferry the next time!
