In what could be the dumbest idea possible, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis attempted to deliver some humor about a bomb being in his luggage at an airport, of all places.

 

It didn't go over well.

 

He was arrested on Sunday and subsequently charged with making "criminal threats," after he joked about having a bomb at the Hawaiian Airlines counter, at the Los Angeles International Airport, per ESPN.

Public information officer Rob Pedregon told the outlet on Monday morning that Davis was released after being detained. He has a May 3 court appearance.

 

"Yesterday, Trevor Davis checked in at the Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter and was asked the usual questions about whether he was carrying any aerosol cans, knives, weapons or explosives," Pedregon said to ESPN. "Davis turned to his female companion and asked if she remembered to pack the explosives. He was then taken into custody and booked."

 

Davis was third in the NFL in punt return average, at 12.0 per return.

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