I thought this was a joke when I read it....but its actually serious. It doesn't seem that this was a real threat but its still funny/scary/odd..The story via URB:

Roth gave a statement to the FBI, and has been asked not to speak about the incident at this time. We will try to get at him ASAP.


According to his publicist, none other than Asher Roth was involved in detaining the man who just made a bomb threat on an Atlanta-to-LAX flight. The rapper was on his way to LA for a performance on Carson Daly. The LA Times reports:

"The unidentified man was aboard Delta Airlines Flight 110, which was approaching Los Angeles, when he got up and stated he had a bomb, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.

"There was an altercation with multiple passengers, who ultimately subdued the man with plastic ties. At one point he tried to exit through one of the aircraft doors after the flight landed at LAX."


Hip Hop DX confirming.
