The former presenter of the BBC’s Top Gear programme, Jeremy Clarkson revealed that he was recently denied boarding a flight to the United Kingdom.
Clarkson stated that he missed his scheduled flight, because he checked in his luggage much later than he was supposed to, which meant that the airline transferred him to a later flight, which then did not arrive at it’s destination at it’s allocated time.
It was also claimed that the real reason for Clarkson being denied boarding was due to the fact that he was heavily drunk. Mr Clarkson denied in his Sun column, that he was drunk.

Police in Germany have queried Jeremy Clarkson’s claim he was barred from a UK-bound flight by an airport employee because of a 2014 Top Gear controversy.
A Reutlingen police spokesman said it was “not comprehensible” to link the furore with Clarkson’s inability to board a plane at Stuttgart Airport.
Clarkson claimed an airport worker had sworn and said he was from Argentina as he stopped him boarding on Monday.
It has since emerged the TV star and his team missed calls for the flight.
“The film crew with Mr Clarkson paused in the lounge and thereby they did not hear the call for the delayed flight to London,” said the police department spokesman.
Following a late arrival at the gate, he continued, there was “a verbal dispute” with an airport employee, identified by The Sun newspaper as a Mr Manuel Pereira.
