Vikings star Jonathan Rhys Meyers detained at Los Angeles airport after alleged mid-flight row with wife

Star of Vikings and The Tudors Jonathan Rhys Meyers has reportedly been detained by Los Angeles police following a mid-flight disturbance.

According to reports, the actor was arrested shortly after his flight landed at Los Angeles International Airport yesterday (July 8).

It’s alleged that Meyers and his wife Mara Lane, who were travelling with their son at the time, got into a disagreement when Meyers tried to smoke his e-cigarette on board a flight from Miami.

The Los Angeles Airport Police confirmed that they had been made aware of a “disturbance” on the plane involving Meyers (via The Daily Mail).

Digital Spy has reached out to his representative for comment.

Responding to reports on Instagram today, Jonathan’s wife Mara apologised on her husband’s behalf for “any inconveniences caused to” their fellow passengers during the incident.

8 months of sobriety and an unfortunate day of airline travel. We were in South America specifically working holistically through anger issues that result in these kinds of episodes. When in it… he is not in a frame of mind where he can really even comprehend the repercussions and necessary response to his own actions. J IS extremely sorry for any inconveniences caused to anyone traveling yesterday. There was no argument, just me asking him to not use his e cig per stewardess’ request to me and him not being himself, speaking very very unkindly. It was out of his character. It was unbeknownst to me anything that happened on flight, as I was with my son with a privacy wall up. We are home safe and he is feeling deeply sorry for any remote disrespect afforded to me, attendants, onlookers or officers. Thank you for your compassion on this ongoing battle with addiction we are in
