New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith had planned to fly from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale Friday. Those plans, according to various reports, quickly went awry.

According to several outlets, Smith was led off the plane by police after engaging in a verbal altercation with a flight attendant. It's unclear at this time whether there was an issue with his use of a cell phone or headphones.

Regardless of the specific altercation, Smith was asked to exit the flight.

No police report was filed, and Smith wasn't arrested.

The Jets released a statement acknowledging the incident.

"We are aware of the report and are researching the facts," a Jets spokesman said. "We will have no comment at this time."
