Leodis McKelvin won't dispute fine
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- An apologetic Buffalo Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin acknowledges he was wrong and will not dispute a $75 fine for failing to follow a crew member's orders during a flight to Buffalo.
McKelvin said Thursday that he was ticketed for refusing to turn off his cellphone and failing to buckle his seatbelt while traveling from New York City on Tuesday.
He says he's apologized and intends to pay the fine. Buffalo's 2008 first-round draft pick adds he should've known better and should have done what he was told.
Buffalo's WIVB-TV first reported McKelvin had been fined on Wednesday.
A Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority police report says McKelvin refused to comply with a request to turn off his cellphone and place the bag that was under his seat into an overhead compartment.
