Actor Michael Rapaport, who currently stars in the Netflix show Atypical saved the day during a flight as a man tried opening the emergency exit door.
The incident took place around an hour into the American Airlines flight.
Details about the situation were shared on Twitter by Fox Sports Director Ted Kennedy.
Kennedy tweeted, “@MichaelRapaport just stopped a guy on our plane from opening emergency door. No joke. Mr New York jump right up and stopped it, no hesitation. Thanks Mike!!!”
Michael Rapaport responded to the tweet, writing “WTF man? Jesus that was fuxking crazy.”
According to Kennedy, a man was trying to get the emergency exit door open when Rapaport got out of his seat, “rushing” over and yelling “what the f*ck are you doing.”
As the ruckus continued, Kennedy as well as some former NBA players now in the Big 3 league came over to help.
At this point, the actor had the man by his collar, pushing him away from the emergency exit door.
Later on, Rapaport posted a video about the situation where he mentioned Baron Davis and Glen “Big Baby” Davis.
ET mentions that the man was able to return to his seat for the rest of the flight after talking to the flight crew. There is no mention about whether or not he was taken into custody upon landing.
