The 29-year-old actor says he was later escorted off the plane — and questioned by police in Phoenix.
US airways has yet to comment on Jackson’s claims.
Brandon’s set to star in the upcoming final season of “Californication” kicking off January 2014. And his attempt at rebooting “Beverly Hills Cop” with Eddie Murphy is now a no-go as no US networks picked up the series.
