Katie Price and Harvey: Star reveals son’s airport outburst which sparked armed police

Former model had to explain that her son has autism

Katie Price has spoken about an airport drama in which her son Harvey was confronted by armed police and had to get off a plane.

The former model, 42, said the incident occurred when Harvey, 18, refused to get off a plane.

According to Katie, Harvey “kicked off” because he didn’t want the family holiday to end.

And the mum-of-five revealed that she had to intervene to prevent her boy from getting into serious trouble.

“Everybody had to get off the other end of the plane. Then he kicked off, then all the armed police came.

“He was trying to smash the phones off the wall in the airport and tunnel. Oh my god, it was a nightmare.”
