Jeremih Reportedly Arrested After Missing Flight

Port Authority police say a member of the 27-year-old "Don't Tell 'Em" singer's party tried opening the door Friday (Dec. 12) in an attempt to get his tardy fellow travelers on board the Phoenix-bound flight.

Jeremih, who police identified as Jeremy Felton, was charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of administration of law. A second man faces the same charges while a third is charged with defiant trespass for allegedly opening the door.
