Tara Reid was kicked off a Delta flight Monday afternoon for causing a "disturbance" on board.

The 42-year-old actress and "Sharknado" star was on a flight from Los Angeles (LAX) to New York (JFK) when she was removed. Video of the incident obtained by TMZ shows a Delta employee speaking to Reid at her seat, telling her she needs to gather her belongings and get off the plane. The video then shows Reid walking off the aircraft carrying a small dog with her.

"Delta Flight 613 from Los Angeles to New York JFK-International returned to the gate, prior to takeoff, due to a customer disturbance on board," the airline told USA Today. A representative for Reid told USA Today that it was indeed the actress who was removed from the flight. She was put on another flight heading to New York.

"Delta apologizes to the remaining customers for the inconvenience and appreciates their patience as the situation was resolved," Delta's statement continued. "The flight redeparted for New York following a short delay."

The airline didn't say what led to Reid being led off the plane, but View From the Wing reports it might have been a conflict about the actress' seat assignment that caused her to be removed.
