Asher Roth Subdues Bomb Suspect on flight to LAX

THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!! Rapper Asher Roth was on a flight from Atlanta to Los Angeles when a passengen stood up and stated he had a bomb. Roth amongst other passengers subdued the man with plastic ties. This photo was taken by Roth's bass player, it shows the police escorting the suspect off the plane. The FBI has asked Asher not to talk about the incident at this time, but I'm sure he'll release his account whenever the time is right.

According to his publicist, The rapper was on his way to LA for a performance on Carson Daly. The LA Times reports:

"The unidentified man was aboard Delta Airlines Flight 110, which was approaching Los Angeles, when he got up and stated he had a bomb, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.
'There was an altercation with multiple passengers, who ultimately subdued the man with plastic ties. At one point he tried to exit through one of the aircraft doors after the flight landed at LAX."

Respect Mr. Roth! We knew Asher could rap, but we didn't know he took down terrorists in his free time. Its about time there was a super hero slash rapper.
