His attorney says Beckham had just fallen asleep with a blanket over his head.
Star NFL wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr was "removed" from an American Airlines flight in Miami after the flight's crew expressed concern over the football player's health, according to police.
Officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department were dispatched to a medical emergency on an American Airlines flight Sunday at around 9:30 a.m., the department said in a statement.

As members of the flight crew tried to wake Beckham to fasten his seat belt prior to departure, "he appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness," according to the statement.
The flight attendants then called 911 due to concerns that Beckham was "seriously ill" and that his condition could worsen during the five-hour flight to Los Angeles, police said.
When officers arrived, Beckham allegedly refused several requests to exit the plane, police said. After the aircraft was deplaned, Beckham followed requests by officers to exit the plane "without incident," according to authorities.
