Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis was arrested Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport for making a bomb threat, a police spokesperson confirmed Monday to USA TODAY Sports.
Los Angeles Airport Police spokesperson Rob Pedregon said Monday that Davis and a female companion were checking in at the Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter Sunday morning when the ticket agent asked them if they had a list of unapproved items like aerosols, knives or explosives — a standard procedure before checking in to a flight.
Davis then turned to the companion and, according to Pedregon, made "a statement in the area of, 'Yeah, did you pack the explosives?'"
Airport police were alerted to the 24-year-old's comments, and he was subsequently arrested on a misdemeanor charge of making a bomb threat. Davis was then booked into a Los Angeles jail shortly after noon Sunday and released within the hour on $15,000 bail, according to online inmate records.
Davis is due to appear in court May 3, according to the online records.
"The Packers are aware of the matter involving Trevor Davis," the team said in a statement to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which is part of the USA TODAY Network. "We are in the process of gathering more information and we will refrain from making any further comment as it is on ongoing legal matter."
TMZ Sports first reported the news of Davis' arrest. Davis' agent did not immediately reply to a request for comment Monday morning.
