'Arrow' star Stephen Amell removed from Delta flight after argument with wife

·2 min read

“Arrow” star Stephen Amell is speaking out after being removed from a Delta flight following an altercation with his wife, Cassandra Jean Amell.

The 40-year-old actor, who's best known for playing hooded vigilante Green Arrow in CW's "Arrow" from 2012-2020, said he was asked to "leave" a Delta flight from Austin to Los Angeles Monday afternoon after the couple got in a squabble.

"My wife and I got into an argument Monday afternoon on a Delta flight," Amell tweeted Wednesday. "I was asked to lower my voice and I did. Approximately 10 minutes later I was asked to leave the flight. And I did so immediately. I was not forcibly removed."

Delta Air Lines spokesperson Morgan Durrant confirmed to USA TODAY Wednesday that there was a "brief, eight minute departure delay" on Delta flight 966 on Monday "after an unruly customer was deplaned from the aircraft prior to departure in Austin."

"The flight arrived ahead of schedule at Los Angeles International Airport," Durrant added.

Although Amell didn't go into detail about the argument with his wife, the actor admitted that he "let my emotions get the better of me, end of story." He added, "I rebooked myself on a Southwest flight 2 hours later and traveled home without any further issue."

Amell and wife Cassandra Jean Amell were returning to Los Angeles from ATX Television Festival, according to her Instagram post, where she wrote that they had a "pretty good time."

The couple tied the knot on Christmas Day 2012. They share 7-year-old daughter Maverick.
