Jonathan Rhys Meyers has been banned from flying United Airlines due to a drunken flight he took earlier this month, Radaronline.com reports:

According to a source at John F. Kennedy airport in New York, in early May Rhys Myers was booked on a United Airlines flight headed to Los Angeles. Despite the early morning departure time, airline workers noticed the actor "pounding drinks" in the first class lounge and becoming increasingly drunk and disorderly.

Rhys Myers then attempted to board the plane but was prohibited from flying due to "belligerent" and "disruptive" behavior that "was getting out of control."

When contacted by RadarOnline.com, an official from United Airlines confirmed the story but refused to elaborate, citing passenger privacy laws.

This is not the first time Jonathan has run into trouble while flying. Last summer he was detained for assaulting a French airport lounge employee and in 2008 he was arrested in the Dublin airport for public drunkenness. He has been in and out of rehab several times.
