Actor Josh Duhamel Kicked Off Flight For Refusing To Turn Off Blackberry

Actor Josh Duhamel, who plays Captain William Lennox in the Transformers series, was kicked off a flight last week after he refused to stop texting on his Blackberry while it was taxiing. The Air Wisconsin plane was forced to return to the gate and disgorge the actor. Now he says he’s learned his lesson.

“I’ve learned that it’s best to always turn them off,” the 38 year-old star told reporters.

Yep, once the cabin doors close you’re not allowed to use those mobile devices until the flight crew announces it’s okay. Not even dating Fergie makes you immune to FAA regulations.
