American Idol Runner-Up Clay Aiken Ruffed Up By Female Passenger

AP – Singer Clay Aiken reportedly got into a dispute with a woman during a Continental Airlines flight to Tulsa on the Saturday morning. Aiken had been traveling due to a show that evening. The clash drew some scrutiny from FBI agents but no charges. One concertgoer said afterward that Aiken joked on-stage about being beaten up by a girl earlier in the day. FBI Special Agent Gary Johnson told the Tulsa World there was a dispute between a male passenger and a woman on the flight. He said the man was a former “American Idol” contestant but did not give his name. Johnson said the dispute was over the male passenger’s foot resting on the woman’s armrest. He said there was an allegation the woman gave the male passenger a “minor shove” during the argument. Tulsa Airport Authority spokeswoman Alexis Higgins said the passengers were held until FBI agents arrived to interview them. No injuries were reported and the disturbance did not interfere with the flight of the aircraft, Johnson said. The U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to file charges.
