Dave Chappelle disrupts pilot and flight.

Dave Chappelle had allegedly freaked out on a private jet. Comedian Dave Chappelle was heading home to Ohio when he was deemed a safety risk on the flight. The Comedy Central host claims he had to use the restroom, but the crew onboard said Dave Chappelle's behavior was unacceptable.

The pilot of the private jet carrying Dave Chappelle decided to make an emergency landing because he couldn't cope with the comedian's "bizarre behavior." The comic had boarded a private jet in New Jersey heading home to Ohio. According to sources, Chappelle "freaked out" and would not put on his seat belt.

Chappelle, 36, allegedly caused a disturbance during the flight. The crew felt that he was a safety risk and diverted the plane to Pittsburgh. This is not Chappelle first meltdown. In 2005, he walked away from a $50 million contract with Comedy Central to produce two more seasons of his hit comedy series, Chappelle Show.

During the taping of his Comedy Central show, he went missing. He did not come back until several weeks later. He was later located in South Africa and denied reports he was on drugs, saying his disappearance was due to a combination of stress and creative angst over the ideas for his show. However, Dave Chappelle did say he had a 40-minute session with a psychiatrist while in South Africa.
