By |

Police at London's Heathrow airport arrested Courtney Love this morning after she allegedly verbally abused the crew of a Virgin Atlantic flight from Los Angeles.

Love, 38, was traveling in the airliner's Upper Class cabin on her way to a London benefit hosted by Elton John and Kevin Spacey. Officials say she refused to sit down and fasten her seatbelt, and got into a loud argument with crew as a result. The plane's pilot then radioed ahead to police, who were waiting at airport to book the singer on charges of endangering an aircraft and disruptive behavior.

A conviction on those charges could carry a two-year prison sentence.
