According to British Airways, Hasselhoff was stopped from boarding a flight from London to Los Angles after he displayed some irregular behaviour.

   The actor was scheduled to fly from Heathrow to LAX on the same day that his controversial divorce from actress Pamela Bach became official.

   The 54 year old Hasselhoff, the star of Bay Watch and Knight Rider, was in London shooting a TV commercial.

   He was waiting for his flight in a first-class lounge around 7 a.m. when he began to act strangely. According to eyewitness accounts, which were supported by video, he appeared to be bewildered, had trouble standing, mumbled incoherently to other passengers and made a pass at a shop clerk. One witness overheard him say, “My life is a mess.”

   Onlookers snapped photos and video of Hasselhoff cruising around in an electric cart typically reserved by airport employees to transport the elderly and unwell.

   Airline officials decided that Hasselhoff was not in the right mental state to be aboard an airplane.

   “A male passenger was denied boarding flight BA279 Heathrow to Los Angeles service as he was deemed to be unfit for travel,” British Airways spokesman Anthony Cane reported, without identifying Hasselhoff by name as mandated by British law.

   Finally, Cane said, “He was reassessed by staff and he was accepted for travel” on a flight departing two hours later.

   Hasselhoff has been in and out of rehab over the past five years for a drinking problem. Upon landing in LAX, he denied reports by British media that his behaviour had anything to do with “falling off the wagon.”

   “Due to a new medication prescribed by his doctor in London on Tuesday, for an infection in his injured hand, Mr. Hasselhoff became ill at Heathrow Airport and requested to be put on a later flight to Los Angeles,” his publicist, Judy Katz, said in a statement.

   The medication that Katz referred to was to treat an infection in the actor‘s right arm. He underwent emergency surgery in London about three weeks ago after slicing four tendons and an artery during a bizarre “shaving incident” in his hotel.

   The incident was much ridiculed by the British tabloid press, which pointed to allegedly unsteady behaviour at Wimbledon several weeks ago to deduce that Hasselhoff was so “steaming drunk” that security had to escort him out of the All England Club. He‘s denied the allegations.
