American Airlines accuses pro athletes of theft

The airline wrongly accused two basketball players of stealing.

ABILENE, TX - American Airlines is now apologizing to two African American professional basketball players after a flight attendant accused them of stealing blankets on a flight.

Memphis hustle guard Marquis Teague and forward Trahson Burrell were kicked off the plane
only to find out the blankets were given to them by two first-class passengers as they boarded.

The incident comes just two months after the NAACP warned African Americans about their safety flying with the airline company.
