Another Musician Behaving Badly on an Airplane. Naturally, There’s Video.

If you’re a fan of UK indie music, you might know about The View, a Scottish band known for this song from 2007.

This week, frontman Kyle Falconer was removed from a Jet2 flight after he became “violent” on a trip from Glasgow to Reus. The plane was diverted and he was arrested in Nantes, France. Word is that he was upset about his seat assignment, which was away from his girlfriend.

When the plane landed, he was led away in handcuffs. The airline plans to pursue him for the costs associated with the diversion.
