MENUDO band member CARLOS OLIVERO was escorted by security off a DELTA flight in ATLANTA after refusing to put away his iPOD, writes PEOPLE. The 18-year-old heartthrob, his mother, and his bandmates were on flight 4483 on JULY 4th as it prepared to leave for an appearance for JOURNAL Top 40 WWST/KNOXVILLE, when OLIVERO was told to leave the plane.
"A flight attendant accused CARLOS of having an attitude after she asked him to turn off his iPOD in preparation for takeoff," the source said. "CARLOS complied and turned his iPOD off, but the flight attendant then demanded he stow it. CARLOS showed her again that the iPOD was turned off, but he refused to stow it."
A DELTA airlines security team was summoned and escorted him and his mother off the plane, the source says. His bandmates, the MENUDO tech crew and management also left the plane, the source says.
