Justin Bieber, Dad Harassed Flight Attendant Before Plane Detained, Pilots Had to Wear Masks Due to Weed Smoke: Report
High in the sky, and supposedly high inside. Justin Bieber may have gotten off scot-free after his private plane was detained at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey last week, but new reports are detailing what supposedly was going on when police searched the aircraft.
According to NBC News, Bieber and his entourage were smoking so much marijuana on the Jan. 31 flight to New Jersey that the pilots needed to wear oxygen masks. "The captain of the flight stated that he warned the passengers, including Bieber, on several occasions to stop smoking marijuana," an official report stated.
Authorities decided to conduct a search because the plane entered from Canada and there was suspicion of marijuana on board. Although drugs were ultimately not found, the 19-year-old singer did admit to drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana when interviewed by authorities. (According to NBC sources, empty bags were later found on the plane that possibly could have contained marijuana, but no items could be linked to the passengers.)
NBC also reports that Bieber and his father Jeremy Bieber, 39, "were extremely abusive verbally" to the female attendant at the time.
"The captain also stated he needed to request that the passengers stop their harassing behavior toward the flight attendant and after several warnings asked the flight attendant to stay with him near the cockpit to avoid any further abuse," NBC reports. "[She said] she would not work another flight with them."
