Dave Chappelle Freak Out Forces Plane To Land Early


It seems like Dave Chappelle still has a case of the crazies!

During a flight on a private jet headed to Ohio from New Jersey, the comedian “freaked out” and became unruly by refusing to put his seatbelt on and then repeatedly walked into the cockpit, asking how much longer the flight would be. At one point, he even grabbed the pilot’s arms!

Sources say that the pilot decided to divert the plane to Pittsburgh after deeming Chappelle a “safety risk.”

Once the plane landed, Chappelle checked into a nearby hotel, but became anxious and kept telling the hotel employees that he needed to rent a car to drive back to Ohio, but he couldn’t remember where he lived.

The employees say they saw him wandering out of the hotel early Saturday morning.

A representative claims that Chappelle was having stomach problems and needed to use a proper bathroom, stating that the plane’s facilities were “not the kind he needed.”


We understand that airplane bathrooms are not the greatest, but to disrupt the pilot while he’s FLYING??? Unreal!

Maybe Dave needs to go on a “hiatus” again.
