The pilot put his hands on me. Why? Because my bag, which fits in my pocket damn near, they claimed it didn’t fit, ”Quincy said. “My assistant had my bag. I was on the plane already. They wouldn’t let him bring it on. He gets on the plane. I let him know, “I need my bag.”
Interaction With Pilot
At this point, Quincy said he lets his assistant know that’s not a bag that can be checked. According to the actor, the bag contained personal items such as his jewelry and medications. He said he wasn’t traveling with anything in his pockets as it was all stored in the alleged prohibited bag. Quincy continued detailing his story in the nearly two-minutes-long clip.
“The pilot comes with my bag, tells me to get my f ** king diabetic medication out. First of all, it’s anxiety medication, ”Quincy said. “Not that. He looks at me and says ‘you’re not taking this bag on the plane.’ I said ‘yes I am.’ He said ‘no you’re not,’ grabs me and drags me on the jet bridge. “
Then, Quincy said he pulled his phone out to record. He also said he didn’t get physical (“knock him out”) with the pilot.
“Everything was just uncalled for,” Quincy said. “I never had a pilot put no hands on me. Like I don’t know what you went through before that. I don’t care, but the severity of me just trying to get my bag, for my personal belongings became a situation where the pilot put his hands on me. “
The video clips ends with Quincy recording himself on the jet bridge speaking to airline officials. At the time of publication, JetBlue hadn’t publicly responded to the situation.
