Is Justin Bieber foolish, arrogant, or just plain stupid. TMZ concluded Bieber is behind door no. three on Wednesday, as the celebrity site outlined details of the pop superstar's recent "pot plane" flight to the U.S.
Bieber and his father Jeremy were on their way back from Bieber's Toronto booking on assault charges. According to an official report obtained by NBC News,
The captain of the flight stated that he warned the passengers, including Bieber, on several occasions to stop smoking marijuana. The captain also stated he needed to request that the passengers stop their harassing behavior toward the flight attendant and after several warnings asked the flight attendant to stay with him near the cockpit to avoid any further abuse.
Reportedly, the cockpit of the Gulfstream IV, a small jet with a capacity of 19, was so full of pot smoke that that pilots were forced to don oxygen masks.
In addition, Bieber and his team allegedly harassed the cabin staff during the flight. One flight attendant was so incensed by the treatment that she vowed to never work on another flight Bieber was on.
Bieber was accompanied by a 10-member strong team and his father. The flight was grounded at Teterboro upon landing so that DEA staff and law enforcement could search the plane for narcotics. However, while police dogs signaled the presence of drugs in at least one of the pieces of luggage marked with Bieber¹s name, no drugs were found.
Police later returned to the jet to conduct a second search, at which time they found bags that could have at one time been filled with marijuana, but could not link the items to Bieber or any member of his entourage, the report says.
One person who boarded the plane three hours after Bieber et. al. disembarked said it continued to reek of pot smoke.
