Published:

Lee Ryan has been arrested after behaving in an ‘intimidating’ and ‘crazy’ manner during a flight from Glasgow to London City Airport on Sunday, in accordance with reports.

The Blue singer, 39, is alleged to have been abusive towards cabin crew after they refused to serve him an alcoholic drink and he was handcuffed after the plane landed.

Staff are believed to have radioed ahead, prompting a police van to meet the previous Celebrity Big Brother contestant on the runway with cops boarding the British Airways flight.

He allegedly spent the night in a cell after being arrested on suspicion of public order offences.

Ryan has since been released from custody after 12 hours, pending further investigation.

A passenger, who claimed the incident delayed the flight by 20 minutes, told The Sun: ‘He became aggressive with the air hostesses once it became clear he would not get given alcohol.

‘At one point he left his seat and commenced walking up and down the aisle despite being told to sit down down — he even ran behind the cabin crew curtains. It was crazy behaviour.’

One other said: ‘The best way he acted was really intimidating.’

The star’s representative declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline. 

A Metropolitan Police spokesman told MailOnline: ‘At around 1640hrs on Sunday, 31 July, officers met a flight that had arrived at London City Airport from Glasgow.

‘A 39-year-old man was arrested for a public order offence. He was taken into custody at an East London police station and was released under investigation the next day.’
