Sharon Stone denies 'air rage' reports
Wednesday 08 July 2009
Sharon Stone's representative has denied reports police detained her at an airport.
It has been alleged the Basic Instinct star was met by law enforcement officers after getting into an argument with a flight attendant about her bag before a Delta flight from Kalispell, Montana, to Salt Lake City took off, but her representative insists she requested security guards met her from the plane.
Spokesman Paul Bloch said: "The people waiting were private security hired by Sharon. She was not detained by police.
"Sharon had been visiting her father in Montana, and was approved to take both bags on the plane. When she got to the plane, she told me the stewardess screamed at her that she couldn't take both bags on board."
According to Bloch, Sharon was unable to combine the two bags she had with her, and also asked the attendant to stop shouting at her.
Sharon reportedly said: "I've had a tough time, my dad's ill."
Bloch added: "She arrived and was met by someone she had arranged to meet her in Salt Lake City. She was greeted by airport services people she had retained who took care of her and her luggage so she could eat and relax... she had no problems getting back on the plane."
Airport spokeswoman Barbara Gann said: "The airport police were requested by her. She was traveling alone and had requested in advance if we could give her special assistance because she was traveling alone and didn't want to cause disruption or congestion from autograph seekers."
