Tommy Lee's Excuse For Helicopter Incident

(SleazeRoxx) Tommy Lee has cleared up reports police ordered his helicopter to land for flying "erratically" - insisting his pilot was trying to get a closer look at a building on fire. The Motley Crue drummer was a passenger in the aircraft when officials grounded it for coming "too close" to a Los Angeles police helicopter over Glendale, California on February 1.

But the star is adamant he wasn't breaking any laws - and was instead just curious about a nearby home up in flames.

He says, "There was nothing scary about it. Motley Crue did a show in Palm Springs, out in the desert, and we were flying the helicopter back. This house was on fire about 30 minutes outside of Van Nuys airport, where we were going to land. So there was this house on fire, you could see all this smoke coming up. And I said, 'F---! Let's go over there and check it out.' We flew close to the house to check it out, and apparently we got into the police's airspace. But we were so far away from them. I still don't understand. Like, there was no way we (were) that close." - more on this story
