NEW YORK -- Actor Josh Duhamel had to be removed from a flight at New York's LaGuardia Airport after refusing to turn off his BlackBerry.
According to TMZ.com, the "Transformers" star was on board the Kentucky bound flight when he was asked to turn off his electronic device before takeoff.
One passenger described Duhamel "very rude" and said he was even "taunting the attendant."
His behavior angered the flight attendant to the point that the plane was turned around on the runway and sent back to the gate.
At that point, two officers boarded the aircraft and escorted the actor off the plane.
As expected, passengers on the flight were upset since Duhamel's behavior caused the already delayed flight to be detained further.
His rep tells TMZ, "He's sorry."
