A spokesperson for Dr. Robert Rey (plastic surgeon and star of E!’s “Dr. 90210”) issued the following statement:

“I can confirm that Dr. Robert Rey was on American Airlines Flight 427 on Monday evening. During the descent in the final ten minutes of the flight, a male passenger traveling in the economy cabin appeared to behave in an agitated and disturbed manner, becoming combative and aggressive toward passengers and flight personnel. After he physically overwhelmed two others who tried to calm him, he began to approach the front of the plane. Dr. Rey waited for as long as possible in the hope that airline personnel might handle the situation, but as the man drew nearer to the front of the plane and no one succeeded in stopping him, Dr. Rey sought help from a fellow passenger and together, they safely restrained the gentleman, who did not speak English. Dr. Rey also conducted a cursory medical examination to discern whether the passenger was experiencing a stroke or other medical crisis. Determining that the passenger was medically stable, Dr. Rey and the flight crew were able to safely restrain him until landing and authorities apprehended him. Dr. Rey expresses his gratitude to all airline personnel, the police, and other authorities who handled the situation.”
