"We all jumped him. He was struggling hardcore. I was holding down his arm. Somebody had a foot on his head. Everyone was holding down a different body part. He was going nuts. I was telling him to chill because he's not going anyplace." That's Chris Llewellyn of Asher Roth's band talking to the LA Times about the mid-morning incident where a man on board claimed he had a bomb as a a Delta flight from Atlanta was landing and taxiing in Los Angeles. The Pennsylvania based band was traveling to town for an appearance on the boring "Last Call With Carson Daly."
