Packers WR arrested for bomb joke at LAX

spike : 4/9/2018 2:00 pm
"Citing law enforcement sources, TMZ reports that Davis and a female companion were checking in for a flight on Hawaiian Airlines when an attendant began asking them the now-customary questions we all get when checking in for a flight.

When asked about their luggage, Davis inexplicably looked at the woman he was traveling with and said, “Did you remember to pack the explosives?”

Good grief.

His companion apparently replied “no,” and, showing she was the one with the sense in the couple, tried to get Davis to stop. Davis said, “Just kidding,” but it was too late.

Police were called immediately, and Davis was taken into custody for misdemeanor criminal threats. He was booked and released.

I'm not excusing the guy's blatant idiocy.

Reeeeeeally fucking stupid.

But is arresting the guy a bit over the top?

I could be talked out of it, but ... Jesus H ... use some common sense, on BOTH sides of this.
He's no TJ Miller

T. J. Miller, the comedian and former star of the HBO series “Silicon Valley,” was arrested Monday night at La Guardia Airport and charged by federal law enforcement authorities with calling in a false bomb threat from an Amtrak train, the United States attorney’s office in Connecticut said Tuesday.

The charge, which carries a maximum five-year jail sentence, stems from March 18, when the authorities said Mr. Miller alerted a 911 dispatcher in New Jersey that a female passenger was hiding a bomb in her bag on Amtrak Train 2256, which he said he was on, and which was headed north from Washington. He described the female passenger as having brown hair and a scarf. Law enforcement alerted Amtrak, disrupting service, but by the time the train was stopped and searched, it was already in Westport, Conn. Passengers were ordered to evacuate while bomb squads searched the train and found no evidence of any explosive materials.

It turned out that Mr. Miller had been on a different train — Amtrak Train 2258 — which pulled into Westport soon after. According to the complaint, when investigators again contacted Mr. Miller, who was then in New York, he described the woman as having red hair, rather than brown, and said she had a black carry-on suitcase with a handle. Mr. Miller said she seemed eager to get off the train while leaving her bag aboard.

The train Mr. Miller had been aboard was not found to contain any explosives, either. An attendant on the train who was working in the first-class cabin where Mr. Miller was sitting told investigators that Mr. Miller “appeared intoxicated upon boarding in Washington,” according to a statement, and that after consuming more drinks after boarding, he was removed in New York. The attendant also said that Mr. Miller was observed to be “involved in hostile exchanges” with a woman sitting in first class.

How else would you expect them to book him on the misdemeanor charge?

It’s a crime, therefore he was arrested. I don’t see the lack of common sense on the authorities side.
It never would have happened
