After an Argument Over a Bag, Quincy Brown Says a Jetblue Pilot "Put His Hands on Him"
This week, musician and actor Quincy shared a story on social media about an incident he had with JetBlue in which a pilot assaulted him over a carry-on bag.
In a video he posted to his Instagram, Quincy described the situation and how he was allegedly assaulted before boarding his JetBlue flight.
“The pilot put his hands on me,” he said in the IG video. “Why? Because my bag, which fits in my pocket damn near, they claimed it didn’t fit. My assistant had my bag. I was on the plane already. They wouldn’t let him bring it on. He gets on the plane. I let him know I need my bag. That’s not a bag to check. It has my medication, my personal [items]. It has my jewelry. It literally has everything; my personal belongings. Nothing’s in my pocket.”
Quincy continued that the pilot then attempted to take his medication bag from him, and that's when things allegedly turned violent, according to him.
“The pilot comes with my bag, tells me to get my fucking diabetic medication out — first of all, it’s anxiety medication, not that. He looks at me and says, ‘You’re not taking this bag on the plane.’ I say, ‘Yes I am.’ He said, ‘No, you’re not,’ grabs me and drags me on the jet bridge. That’s when I got my phone out.”
“I didn’t knock him out and everything was just uncalled for,” he added. “I never had no pilot put no hands on me. Like, I don’t know what you went through before that, I don’t care. But the severity of me just trying to get my bag for my personal belongings became a situation to where the pilot put his hands on me.”
There has been no response from JetBlue.
