Ll Cool J Quarantined After Mid-air Drama

Rapper LL COOL J was forced to endure the flight from hell during a routine trip from Los Angeles to St. Louis, Missouri - after passengers were quarantined for three hours following an emergency landing.
The 41 year old MC was jetting to the state for the All-Star baseball game on Tuesday (14Jul09) when a passenger claimed they could smell smoke.
The pilot took the decision to make an emergency landing in Kansas City.
But things got even worse when one of the passengers, who had returned from a trip outside of the U.S., fell ill, meaning all of the flight's ticketholders had to stay under quarantine for three hours.
However, LL Cool J proved himself to be the perfect superstar - happily posing for pictures and signed autographs for fans.
One passenger tells ESPN.com, "I was on the plane last night, too - sitting right behind LL on the plane, then with him in the airport in KC. I have to say that he couldn't have been more cool with all of us.
"Of course, some of us wanted to get a photo with him and he was just great about it. Given the situation, no one would have blamed him if he'd said 'hey, not now' - but he said 'sure!' and provided big hugs and warm smiles for us.
"Major, major points for being a true gentleman and a trooper."
But even the admiration from devotees couldn't get the star back on another plane - he hired a driver to complete the rest of his trip.
