Alec Baldwin kicked off flight in LA for playing game on cellphone while plane idled at gate
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' Alec Baldwin has been kicked off a plane at Los Angeles International Airport for having words with a flight attendant over a word game he was playing on his cellphone.
Baldwin's spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik, says the "30 Rock" actor was asked to get off a New York City-bound flight for playing "Words with Friends" while the plane idled at a gate Tuesday.
Baldwin took to Twitter to vent, saying a flight attendant had reamed him.
Sgt. Belinda Nettles says airport police did not respond to the incident.
Hiltzik says Baldwin he took another American Airlines flight to New York.
Baldwin tweeted that it would be his last flight with the airline, and that "Words With Friends" is an addicting game.
American Airlines did not provide an immediate response.
