Deadspin.com published a picture of Smith talking with officers at the airport and quoted a witness saying Smith was loud and cursed for about five minutes in a dispute with a ticket agent. Smith was not arrested and sought the police himself. The initial dispute with the Virgin Atlantic flight attendant occurred over Smith refusing to take off his headphones before a flight to Fort Lauderdale. Smith, who is from South Florida, eventually left the flight voluntarily.
The Jets issued a statement saying they were aware of the incident but had no further com-ment.
