Body camera footage from the Miami-Dade police officers who escorted NFL wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. off of a plane in November has been released.

The footage begins with officers boarding the American Airlines flight holding Beckham, who was seated in first class, prior to takeoff, Fox News reports.

"Sir, are you able to get up? Can you get up please? Are you OK?" one officer asked.

Beckham looked confused but responded saying he knew was in Miami and on a flight to Los Angeles.

"He looks good to me," one officer said.

However, as the officers appeared to be exiting the plane, flight attendants stopped them from leaving.

"Do you know how many times we’ve shaken him to put the seatbelt on?" one attendant told police.

"He’s probably in a deep sleep," one official said, per the body camera footage.

Still, the flight attendants didn’t believe Beckham was fit to take the five-hour flight to LA, with one claiming that the NFL free agent told them he was out clubbing the night before.

The incident resulted in all passengers deboarding the plane. As Beckham was escorted off the plane by law enforcement, he exchanged words with another passenger.

“That sh*t don’t mean nothing to me. … You gonna wait 40 minutes and I’mma be on a private plane home,” he said.

"Got life f****d up, I’m sorry," Beckham continued. "All you had to do was wake me up."

According to a Miami-Dade police report, Beckham appeared to be “coming in and out of consciousness” when flight attendants tried to wake up him to fasten his seatbelt. Out of concern that "his condition would worsen through the expected 5-hour flight," Beckham was asked to leave.

The wide receiver seemingly responded to the incident in a series of tweets.

"Never in my life have I experienced what just happened to me… I’ve seen it all..," Beckham tweeted.

Daniel Davilier, Beckham's attorney, said his client typically sleeps with a blanket over his head during long flights.

“He was [awakened] and told that the plane was back at the gate and that he needed to get off the plane because he did not put his seatbelt on when asked,” Davilier said in a statement, per Complex. “He responded that he was asleep, and that he would put his seatbelt on at that time. He was informed that it was too late, and that either he would have to get off the plane or everyone would have to deplane.”
