Packers wide receiver arrested after airport bomb comment

Green Bay Packers wideout Trevor Davis learned the hard way as he was arrested at LAX for misdemeanor criminal threats after allegedly making a joke to a female companion about packing explosives.

Davis then reportedly turned to his girlfriend and asked if she remembered to pack the explosives.

According to the TMZ Sports website, Davis turned to a female companion and asked: "Did you keep in mind to pack the explosives?"

According to TMZ Sports and confirmed by ESPN, Davis was arrested for making "criminal threats". What was supposed to be a harmless comment may have altered Davis' career with the Packers or even the NFL [VIDEO]for that matter.

The staff explained in an announcement to that the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel they are attentive to the circumstance, however, didn't not comment more. I'm pretty sure rule number one that you learn before ever walking into an airport is that jokes about guns, bombs and hijackings are not welcomed at all.

Tom Mars Hits Back as Ole Miss Objects to Patterson's Waiver Request
Bjork's comment to Wolken comes shortly after Patterson's lawyer, Thomas Mars , crushed Ole Miss in his own comments to Wolken. Ole Miss is blocking MI junior QB Shea Patterson's appeal for immediate eligibility, according to Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports .

The Packers released a statement to NFL.com following news of the arrest, which was first reported by TMZ. He was booked - mug shot and all - and then released.

The woman said in response, "Yes". Davis' preliminary court hearing is scheduled for May 3.

"The Packers are aware of the matter involving Trevor Davis", the Packers said.

Davis likely won't receive extra disciplinary action from the team for that relatively minor offense. Serving primarily as a punt returner in his first two seasons for the green and gold, he averaged 12 yards per punt return, ranking him third in the National Football League, and 22.8 yards per kickoff.

Davis, 24, was a fifth-round pick in 2016 out of Cal. He is pictured (right) on September 10, 2017 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
