Packers’ Davis arrested over airport explosives ‘joke’

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis was arrested by authorities at Los Angeles International Airport after joking about explosives stowed in his luggage, police said on Monday.

Davis, 24, was detained on Sunday for comments made during security-related questions as he attempted to check in at a Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter, a police spokesman confirmed.

According to the TMZ Sports website, Davis turned to a female companion and asked: “Did you remember to pack the explosives?”

He was promptly arrested by airport police before being released on $15,000 bail.

He was later charged with a misdemeanour count of making a criminal threat and is due to appear in court on May 3.

The Packers declined to comment on the specifics of Davis’s case.

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

Davis was selected in the fifth round of the 2016 draft and has eight receptions for 94 yards during 27 career games.
