Jonathan Rhys Meyers Detained By Police at LAX Airport After Fighting with Wife on Plane (Report)

Jonathan Rhys Meyers reportedly was detained by police at LAX Airport after arriving on a flight from Miami on Sunday (July 8), though no official statement has been made.

The 40-year-old actor was on a flight with his wife Mara and their one-year-old son Wolf.

TMZ reports that on the flight, Jonathan allegedly became “verbally abusive” towards Mara after they got into an argument. Jonathan was apparently cursing during the argument and other passengers reportedly became upset.

At one point, Jonathan also got up to go to the bathroom and was allegedly smoking an e-cigarette. This is a federal violation and he did stop when he was asked to stop by a flight attendant.

Upon landing in Los Angeles, Jonathan was detained, but denied smoking the e-cig. Police called the FBI but they did not feel the need to respond to the call and Jonathan was released.

The report also suggests that Jonathan had been drinking, though there has been no official statement. Jonathan has been to rehab several times over the years.

We’ve reached out to his reps for comment.

    I hope you get beat. Learn something, then choose your words so you don’t sound like an idiot.

    the idiot is his wife. having a kid with an addict and allowing herself to be a worldwide fool. she deserves whatever she gets and then some. she needs to grow some self esteem
