NFL player arrested for joke about packing ‘explosives’ for flight to Hawaii

Some things are no laughing matter. Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis found that out the hard way Monday, when he was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after making a joke about bringing a bomb aboard a flight to Hawaii.

An airport police spokesman said (via the AP) that Davis was checking in for his flight on Hawaiian Airlines, when an agent at the ticket counter asked him a routine question about whether he had any explosives in his luggage. The third-year player was said to have answered, “Yeah,” before turning to his female companion and asking her, “Did you pack the explosives?”

According to TMZ Sports, the woman said “No” and tried to get Davis to stop joking around, at which point he said, “Just kidding.” However, airline employees called police and Davis was arrested for misdemeanor criminal threats, while the woman was not charged.

“The Packers are aware of the matter involving Trevor Davis,” the team said in a statement (via NFL.com). “We are in the process of gathering more information and will refrain from making any further comment as it is an ongoing legal matter.”
