Dave Chappelle Deemed ‘Safety Risk’ on Private Jet, forces emergency landing in Pennsylvania after leaving New Jersey bound for Ohio —
Gossip Vita reported on July 3 that a private jet carrying comedian Dave Chappelle (of the movies Block Party, Undercover Brother, and Half Baked) made an emergency landing in Pittsburgh last night when he forced the private jet he was on to land and capitulate to his demands.
Because the pilot couldn’t handle Chappelle’s erratic and terrorist like behavior so he set the plane down early on the East Coast.
The report stemmed from an article posted on TMZ detailing the rumors about Chappelle’s state of mind and the difficulties he allegedly caused the pilot and crew on a private jet he charted in New Jersey.
A source extremely familiar with the incident tells TMZ Chappelle boarded a private jet in New Jersey last night bound for Ohio — where the actor lives.
During the flight, we’re told Dave “freaked out” and refused to put his seat belt on. Then — according to sources — 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.
We’re told 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.
So far, no comment from Chappelle’s camp.
Dave Chappelle has been in a wide variety of movies and had a very successful television show on Comedy Central when his self admitted drug addictions and the pressures of Hollywood fame got the best of him.
He quit the show, and has made limited public appearances since then.
If the story is true, it is likely Chappelle had some sort of panic attack mid air.
Other sources are reporting that Chappelle actually was having a bathroom emergency and wanted back on the ground and out of the air, but all reports remain unconfirmed.
