LOS ANGELES, Calif. (November 13, 2007) – Forget flying the friendly skies, John Stamos had an all-too-close-for-comfort encounter with a female passenger aboard a flight on Monday.
The FBI was called to Los Angeles International Airport on Monday after the “ER” star was involved in an airline altercation with another passenger, a source confirmed to Access Hollywood.
Los Angeles TV station KNBC was the first to report the incident.
Stamos was flying back from Chicago after filming some scenes for “ER,” and was asleep in first class when a woman allegedly shook him awake, the source told Access.
The actor told the woman he was tired and wanted to go back to sleep and she reportedly shook him again.
When Stamos got up to use the restroom, the woman said she would sit in his seat until he came back.
When Stamos tried to return to his seat, the woman reportedly hit him in the hand over and over.
Airline personnel asked the woman to go back to her seat, and Stamos eventually ended up switching seats himself.
The woman then allegedly started making a scene, screaming and threatening Stamos.
Police and FBI were waiting at LAX when the plane landed.
The FBI took statements from all those involved, however, Stamos did not press charges.
According to the source, the woman’s children were also in Chicago filming scenes for “ER” as well.
