I don't think Jonathan Rhys Meyers is alone in his love for the airport bar. Watching one week of Airline will pretty much tell you there are a lot of people who love airport bars. I am one of them. In the past I will admit that I may have imbibed a bit too much in an airport bar. But, in my defense, there is nothing quite like the feeling of having a Bloody Mary at 9am while you watch people scurry off to wherever they are going.
After I watched the show though, I got smart and now just drink heavily on the plane. It is much harder to get you out of a plane than to deny you boarding. Thank you Southwest for that tip. Anyway, as you will recall Jonathan had a little incident in the Dublin airport a few years ago where he was arrested in the airport for being drunk and disorderly.
Yesterday in Paris he was at it again. He got into a fight with police at the airport and did a do you know who I am thing before throwing euros at the police, telling them he was rich and then said, "You wanna hit me? Hit me!" They chose not to hit him. They were probably afraid he would start Twittering and asking for help. After he spent some time in jail and sobered up the cops released him and presumably he left the country.
