According to the Daily Star, the cigarette-dangling Wood allegedly told the London airport's security to "f--- off", yelling "I don't care, just give me a light." Woody next opened the door of a cab and started searching through its glove compartment, saying, "I'll help you have a look for one."
It's not the first time Wood has painted the town red since relapsing after a July 2008 rehab stint. Last September, he supposedly fell off the wagon after hanging with British artist Damien Hirst. Then in February, Stones guitarist Keith Richards, no stranger to booze himself, told vodka aficionado Ronnie to dry out or he might be tossed from the group's upcoming tour plans.
It's indeed been a controversial year for the guitarist and grandfather of six since he left his wife, Jo, last summer after 23 years of marriage for Russian-born model Ekaterina Ivanova, who's now 20 years old. Although initially distraught when Ronnie moved out of the family's estate in last October, his estranged wife, who has been tapped to appear on the BBC One ballroom competition 'Strictly Come Dancing,' is now relieved.
"He's kind of done me a favor," says Jo Wood. "I'm a lot happier now and feel as if I've got my life back."
