Ed Sheeran posed for a selfie with a fan at Miami airport before boarding a British Airways flight to Heathrow, during which a drunken passenger allegedly swore at members of the cabin crew.

The Metropolitan Police arrested a 46-year-old man when the plane landed in London in the early hours of Tuesday, October 24, 2023. Witnesses claimed the man appeared to have had a lot to drink and was acting like a monkey.

According to the “Daily Mail”, the famous artist, Ed Sheeran, agreed to take a selfie with fan Dan Haughian at the departure gate in Miami before the … “episodic” flight. The pop star is believed to have been nowhere near the incident.

Speaking about what happened on the flight, a passenger said: “Everything ended in chaos. The things this guy said and did were just obscene. When they refused to give him a drink, he started making monkey noises and gestures at the cabin crew.”.

The passenger reportedly had to be “restrained” by an ex-policeman and two other passengers on the flight and then moved to a seat normally reserved for cabin crew. He remained under surveillance for the remainder of the flight, with the journey continuing normally to England.
