Asher Roth Saves the Day Aboard Plane

  /  01.07.2009


Not only is Asher Roth trying to save hip-hop, he’s also making our skies safer.

The Morrisville, Pa. native and his band were involved in subduing a man who made a bomb threat on an Atlanta-to-LAX flight on Wednesday. The rap newcomer was on his way to Los Angeles to perform on NBC’s “Last Call with Carson Daly.”

“The unidentified man was aboard Delta Airlines Flight 110, which was approaching Los Angeles, when he got up and stated he had a bomb,” FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller told the Los Angeles Times.

“There was an altercation with multiple passengers, who ultimately subdued the man with plastic ties. At one point he tried to exit through one of the aircraft doors after the flight landed at LAX,” said Eimiller.

Asher Roth will release his debut this spring. The album features the single “I Love College.” Listen here.

If rapping doesn’t work out, maybe Asher could get a job for homeland security.
