Quincy Brown, son of the late model Kim Porter and singer Al B. Sure!, claims a JetBlue pilot “grabbed” and “dragged” him during a dispute over a bag.
The 30-year-old actor/singer took to social media on Monday to share his account of the “uncalled for” incident.
“WHAT A FAKKIN FLIGHT,” Sean Combs’ stepson tweeted. “SMH @JetBlue y’all pilot out of pocket for putting his hands on me!! #jetblue.”

Quincy said the argument was over a small carry on bag that his assistant carried. The bag held his diabetic medicine and jewelry. Q said the pilot assaulted him when he refused to check the bag.
In an Instagram video, Quincy said:
“The pilot put his hands on me. Why? Because my bag, which fits in my pocket damn near, they claimed it didn’t fit. My assistant had my bag. I was on the plane already. They wouldn’t let him bring it on. He gets on the plane. I let him know I need my bag. That’s not a bag to check. It has my medication. It has my personal [items]. It has my jewelry. It literally has everything that’s my personal belongings.”
He said the JetBlue pilot refused to let him board with the bag, and a loud argument ensued. The pilot then allegedly “grabbed” Q and “dragged” him off the plane and onto the airline bridge.
“That’s when I got my phone out. I didn’t knock him out,” said Quincy. “Everything was just uncalled for. I never had no pilot put his hands on me…”
Q posted a cell phon photo of the pilot on Instagram. The pilot was identified as Todd Papesh in a Linkedin profile.
An airline official can be heard apologizing to Quincy in the video.
