Dave Chappelle Blames Plane Freakout on Bad Food

He’s most known for his comedic behavior, but Dave Chappelle was the reason behind an emergency landing in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Friday night (July 2).

TMZ is reporting that a private jet with the “Chappelle Show” funnyman was forced to land because the pilot couldn’t handle his erratic behavior.

A source told that, during the flight, Dave "freaked out" and refused to put his seat belt on. Then - according to sources - he repeatedly walked into the cockpit, asking how much longer the flight would be and started grabbing the pilot's arms.

A rep for Chappelle explained the incident to TMZ, telling Mr Chappelle really needed to use the restroom - he ate something that didn't sit well - and the bathroom on the plane was "not the kind he needed."
