The singer-guitarist for the San Francisco Bay area-based band sent a message to his Twitter followers on Thursday expressing his indignation at being tossed from an Oakland-to-Burbank flight for wearing his trousers too low.
An ABC7 news producer who was on the same flight told the station that a flight attendant approached Armstrong as the plane before take-off and asked him to hike his pants higher.
The producer, Cindy Qiu, says when Armstrong insisted he was just trying to get to his seat, he and a traveling companion were taken off the plane.
Southwest spokesman Brad Hawkins says in a statement that Armstrong was allowed to board the next flight.
