brightcove.createExperiences(); Blac Chyna has been arrested on charges of public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance 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.

Police officials confirm to PEOPLE that Blac Chyna, whose birth name is Angela Renée White, was escorted off her commercial plane and placed in handcuffs. “At 6:22pm Airport Officers were informed that there was an intoxicated female on a flight that was about to depart ABIA and she was causing a disturbance and would not be allowed to remain on the plane,” an official said.

An eye witness told TMZ that the 27-year-old 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.
