Hockey players booted from flight

CHEEKTOWAGA, NY (CNN) - More than two dozen members of the Russian hockey team were booted from a Delta Airlines flight for being too rowdy.

The flight was headed to Atlanta from Buffalo Thursday morning.

Delta Airlines released a statement saying the players were not allowed to board the flight because of unruly behavior.

Witnesses say some of the players were drunk and even vomiting at the gate. The players were booked on a later flight.

The Russians beat Canada Wednesday night to claim the gold medal in the World Junior Championship.
