NBA Superstar and adidas athlete, John Wall, was recently forced to get out of a plane due to one of his crew members threatening another passenger. Although John Wall didn’t personally cause any threats/incidents, it appears that he was guilty by association.
Wall has just finished spending a few days in Las Vegas and he and his friends were headed back to D.C.. We’re not sure how or why this threat happened, but we do know that the pilot asked Wall and his group to exit the plane as soon as the altercation finishes.
Law enforcement sources tell us the Washington Wizards star had boarded a flight headed to D.C. on May 26th — but before the plane took off, his crew got into a verbal argument with someone else on the plane and a threat was allegedly made from someone in Wall’s group.
We’re told someone from the flight crew called the Las Vegas Metro Police Department for help — and cops boarded the plane to deal with the situation.
The alleged victim told cops he did not want to press charges — but the pilot of the plane decided he did NOT want Wall and his crew to remain on the flight so they were escorted off. […] We’re told Wall and his party left without further incident.
Some people say that any press is good press. I’m willing to bet that adidas begs to differ, as they don’t want any of the endorsed athletes to make the news for all the wrong reasons. Although John Wall was not the person who committed the threat, it’s still not a good look since he appears guilty by association.
I’m sure this is only a one time occurence that happened to Wall, but if I were him, I’d be careful who I let in my circle.
