Blac Chyna has been arrested on a public intoxication charge in Austin, PEOPLE has confirmed.

The model and girlfriend of Rob Kardashian was flying from Los Angeles to London for a personal appearance at the Beorma Club, sources told PEOPLE earlier Friday. She never made it to her final destination and was arrested during a layover at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

TMZ reports that Blac Chyna, whose birth name is Angela Renée White, was escorted off her commercial plane and placed in handcuffs. An eye witness told the outlet that Blac Chyna, 27, appeared “heavily intoxicated” on the plane and was belligerent with flight attendants.

Her arrest comes just days after news broke that she’s dating Rob, 28. The mother of one shares a son with Rob’s sister Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend Tyga and was once close friends with Kim Kardashian West.

Rob has been living with Blac Chyna, and his mother Kris Jenner was spotted visiting him the model’s home Friday, after she left for LAX.
