Buffalo Bills defensive back and kick returner Leodis McKelvin was fined $75 for disrupting a flight from New York to Buffalo, according to WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo.
McKelvin was not arrested or detained, and said he will pay the fine. The disruption apparently stemmed from his refusal to turn off his cell phone and not wanting to place his baggage in the overhead compartments.
McKelvin is fresh off being named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week this past week for his efforts against the Miami Dolphins last Thursday night, including a return for a touchdown.
