Police at LAX Airport detained actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers following his flight after he allegedly got into a verbal altercation with his wife onboard an American Airlines flight.
A representative for American Airlines told Page Six on Monday that Meyers and his wife Mara Lane were engaged in a “domestic dispute” while flying from Miami to Los Angeles with their 1-year-old son. American Airlines requested law enforcement meet the flight, which landed close to 8 p.m. PT, given the “nature of the argument.”
Los Angeles Airport Police also told us that Meyers, 40, “took a drag or was about to take a drag of a vape pen,” but the flight crew told him it was against regulation and he put it away.
Meyers and his wife’s verbal altercation didn’t have any physical component, so it was determined that no crime had been committed. As a result, he and his wife were released.

Meyers has sought treatment for alcoholism in the past, most recently having relapsed in September 2017 following his wife’s miscarriage.
A rep for Meyers didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
