New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith walked off his flight at Los Angeles International Airport after getting into an argument with a flight attendant, the Associated Press reported.

Mr. Smith was on a Virgin America flight from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Friday when an attendant asked Smith to remove his headphones and an argument erupted, according to a source that spoke with AP.

The source spoke to on condition of anonymity because no official report was filed to or by the airport.

Mr. Smith, who just finished his rookie season with the Jets, asked to speak to a supervisor before leaving the plane on his own and talked with police at the gate before leaving the flight.

The Jets declined comment in a statement.
