Odell Beckham Jr. was escorted off of an American Airlines flight by police Sunday morning after crew members who tried to wake him up before departure grew concerned because he “appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness,” according to officials.

This incident comes four days before the wide receiver’s first free-agency visit. He most recently played for the Los Angeles Rams.

The Miami-Dade Police Department responded to American Airlines flight 1228 in Miami, bound for Los Angeles, at around 9:30 a.m. after flight attendants called for help out of fear that Beckham Jr. was ill and “his condition would worsen through the expected 5-hour flight,” police said.
