Plane Forced to Land: Dave Chappelle a Safety Risk?

| by

A private jet carrying comedian Dave Chappelle made an emergency landing in Pittsburgh last night because the pilot couldn’t handle Chappelle’s erratic behavior – and when you read what he did you’ll see why!

During the flight Dave "freaked out" and refused to put his seat belt on.   Then Dave repeatedly walked into the cockpit, asking how much longer the flight would be, and started grabbing the pilot’s arms!   Sources say the pilot determined Chappelle was a safety risk and diverted the plane to Pittsburgh.

Chappelle then checked into a nearby hotel for the night. Sources at the hotel tell us Dave has been telling hotel employees he wanted to rent a car to drive back to Ohio … only he couldn’t remember where he lived. Chappelle was spotted wandering out of the hotel early this morning. I can’t imagine that Dave was not on

A rep for Chappelle explained the entire incident by saying Dave really needed to use the restroom — he ate something that didn’t sit well — and the bathroom on the plane was "not the kind he needed."   What exactly did Dave need in the bathroom? We will never know.
