Alec Baldwin kicked off flight at LAX

December 6, 2011 |  2:25 pm


Actor Alec Baldwin was kicked off a flight at Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday.

It's not exactly clear what prompted his removal from the plane. A law enforcement source told The Times he was escorted off an American Airlines flight. The source said police were not involved in the incident, which he said was between the airline and the actor. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Baldwin took to Twitter, writing: "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving."

Baldwin appears on the TV show "30 Rock" and has starred in such recent movies as "It's Complicated."
