PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Cowboys defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford says he was kicked off an American Airlines flight earlier this week.

“Crawford said that he was sitting in an exit row when he was asked by a flight attendant to check his bag because it was over an inch too big,” according to 105.3 the fan in Dallas.

The 27-year-old Crawford told the Ben and Skin Show on 105.3 The Fan that his bag was expensive and he didn’t want to check it. Eventually, according to the story, Crawford decided to check the bag because he didn’t want to hold up the flight waiting for a manager. However, he was accused of calling an employee a “bum” and refused to move out of the flight attendant’s way for, what he called, a “minute.”

It seems like Crawford has forgiven the airlines.

Crawford was the Cowboys’ third round pick in 2012 and recorded 4.5 sacks in 14 games last season.
