After dropping word, yesterday, about Asher’s adventures in LAX – the new school champion sits down and talks about his heroism. Asher Roth’s guitarist and bass player Chris Llewellyn recently spoke to the Los Angeles Times on the specifics of the incident.
After hearing a flight attendant yell, “Help me, help me“, Llewellyn and six other passengers came to the flight attendant’s aid.
“We were all sitting in our seats,” Llewellyn told the Times. “My boys had their headphones on. I turned around and got up and ran to the back of the plane. The suspect was yelling, ‘Don’t come near me, I have a bomb, I have a bomb!'”
It has yet to be announced if the suspect actually had a bomb.
“We all jumped him,” Llewellyn explained. “He was struggling hardcore. I was holding down his arm. Somebody had a foot on his head. Everyone was holding down a different body part. He was going nuts. I was telling him to chill because he’s not going anyplace.”
Asher Roth and his band were flying to Los Angeles to appear on Carson Daly’s late-night-TV show, Last Call with Carson Daly. Llewellyn did make a brief appearance on the show last night (January 7th) to discuss the incident.
