Jared Followill confronted at airport over electronic cigarette

Kings Of Leon star Jared Followill had a terrifying brush with airport security guards in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) this week (beg11Nov13) when he was stopped in Dubai for carrying an electronic cigarette.

The bassist, who touched down in the city on Wednesday (13Nov13) with his bandmates, was reportedly confronted by a security team at the airport over his electronic cigarette, which are banned in the country.


The star took to Twitter.com to tell fans about the incident, writing, "Just had the life scared out of me at security in Dubai. Apparently it's not just my bros (brothers) who think e-cigs (sic) are uncool. Almost locked up abroad."
