Tara Reid kicked off Delta flight for 'customer disturbance'

This turbulence started on the ground.

Tara Reid flew into a rage on a flight, shortly before takeoff. prompting the captain to toss her, and her little dog, off the plane.

Reid was on a plane from Los Angeles to NY and she caused a serious disturbance right before take-off, prompting the captain to refuse to put the plane in the air until she was de-boarded. Flight attendants reportedly attempted to diffuse the situation, but the pilot announced he was turning the plane around - which had already pushed back from the gate - due to a customer service issue.

Michael Thomas, a spokesperson for Delta, told Sputnik on Tuesday that flight 613 was delayed "due to a customer disturbance on board", and did not offer further details in relation to Reid's complaints.

Sources told tabloid news site TMZ that Reid's grievances were mainly about her not getting a window seat or a pillow for the flight.
