Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin was arrested at an Austin, TX airport this morning after the L.A.-bound flight he was on was forced to make an emergency landing because he became “drunkenly combative” with a flight attendant. No mention if he was also playing Words with Friends. TMZ says:

According to the Austin PD, Scantlin got into a verbal argument with a flight attendant over alcohol. Airport security says Scantlin was upset because the flight crew wouldn’t sell him booze.

Scantlin’s flight was originally bound for L.A. but was re-routed to Bergstrom International Airport in Austin for an emergency stop, where Scantlin was booted from the plane.

Scantlin was arrested and booked for public intoxication, but he could also later face federal charges of interfering with a flight crew.

God only knows how many connecting flights were missed, and how much it cost the airline to divert the flight, and how many people were inconvenienced by his drunken display of jackassery, but it still could have been worse. They could have had to listen Puddle of Mudds songs for the whole five-hour flight. You have to look for the silver lining.

The 53-year-old “30 Rock” actor Alec Baldwin held up an entire plane full of people and was eventually kicked off his American Airlines flight yesterday after he refused to turn off his goddamn cellphone so he could play Words With Friends. Yeah, that’s right — fuck everybody else. They’re not on TV, are they? Us Magazine says:

Said managing director Michael J. Wolf: “On an AA flight at LAX. Alec Baldwin removed from the plane. We had to go back to the gate. Terrible that everyone had to wait.”

Baldwin’s early exit may have been due to his use of electronics. “The flight attendant on American reamed me out for playing Words With Friends while we sat at the gate, not moving,” Baldwin tweeted. “No wonder American Air is bankrupt.”

Baldwin’s rep explained the ordeal, saying: “Alec was asked to leave the flight for playing Words with Friends while parked at the gate. He loves WWF so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it, but he has already boarded another AA flight.”

Wow… what a selfless display of holiday spirit right there. I thought you needed a vendetta against all the Whos down in Whoville to be that kind of Christmas asshole.

You already knew that crack was wack — apparently, airplane seat belts are wack, too. Whitney Houston almost got kicked off a Delta Airlines flight for refusing to buckle hers yesterday. TMZ says:

Whitney boarded a flight in Atlanta Wednesday afternoon, and when she settled into her seat, a crew member asked her to buckle up.

Whitney refused and “got diva” on the crew member … until another crew member came over and warned Houston that if she didn’t buckle up, she would have to get off the plane.

Whitney eventually allowed one of the crew members to grab the buckle and fasten it for the singer — and the plane was then cleared for takeoff.

Sources close to the singer tell us … Whitney “overreacted a little bit after missing an earlier flight but she’s still 100% sober and was on the way to Detroit for her first day of shooting a new movie.”

Well, having to buckle Whitney Houston’s seat belt is still better than having to dig a doody bubble out of her butt. Flight attendant, 1; Bobby Brown, 0.

How many times has this happened to you — you sit down on a plane and get to talking to the guy sitting next to you, and lo and behold, it turns out that the guy is the very same guy who made a sex tape with your wife and then posted the footage on the internet. Boy, if I had a nickel! Page Six says:

Kris Humphries was stone-faced seated next to Kim Kardashian’s ex, Ray J, on a Delta flight Sunday from LA to New Orleans. Humphries, who boarded in Minneapolis, was in an aisle seat across from the singer in first class. Humphries sat there for a few minutes before moving to a seat in front of Ray J.

After minutes of “awkward silence,” Ray J walked up to Humphries’ seat to congratulate him, but Kris acted like he didn’t recognize him. According to a source, “Ray J said, ‘Come on, you know who I am. I just want to say congratulations.’ Then Kris, realizing he was cornered, said, ‘Oh yeah, yeah, I’m sorry I know who you are.’ ”

Believe it or not, there are people out there who don’t know who you are, Ray-J. People who don’t listen to F-list rap from ten years ago. People like me, for instance. Ray J could walk right up to me on the street and I’d have no idea who the hell he was. None. Chances are good I’d just assume he was going to rape me because I’m a white woman and then hose him down with pepper spray.

French actor Gerard Depardieu held up a flight for two hours after he urinated in the aisle of the plane because a flight attendant told him he’d have to wait until the fasten seat belt light was off to use the facilities. I’m sure he then farted in our general direction and thumbed his gigantic nose at us. The Daily Mail says:

The drunk 63-year-old actor called out ‘I need to piss, I need to piss,’ as the flight from Paris to Dublin was preparing for take-off on Tuesday evening.

But cabin crew told him that because the plane was taxiing to the runway he would have to wait until they were airborne and the seat-belts signs had been turned off.

So instead, [Depardieu] stood up, unzipped his flies and relieved himself in the cabin — to the horror of fellow passengers.

The Air France flight then returned to the stand and was delayed for two hours while it was cleaned.

I’m sure he only pissed in the aisle because he couldn’t find an American flag to pee on first. Fucking frogs, man. He couldn’t be more stereotypically French if he was wearing a beret and waving a white flag made out of cheese and German lubricant.
