When former NFL linebacker Aldon Smith joked about having a bomb at LAX, he ultimately did not face charges. For now, Packers receiver Trevor Davis isn’t off the hook.

Via USA Today, Davis has a May 3 court date in connection with the arrest arising from a joke made at LAX about having a bomb in his luggage. He is free on $15,000 bail.

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

Initial reports indicated that Davis asked a female companion whether she had packed the explosives, and that she said, “Yes.” That prompted questions about why she wasn’t also arrested. Per USA Today, the woman reportedly said, “No.” She also tried to get Davis to stop, but it was too late.

Davis faces not only legal scrutiny but also a potential sanction under the Personal Conduct Policy.

  1. So why didn’t Aldon Smith also face charges? He seems like more of a threat than this guy.

  2. I don’t think the NFL needs to take any disciplinary action, as this guy will suffer enough for forever being known as the dope that made an explosives joke while standing in the TSA line.

  3. OK on this one I got to say I’m kind of with this guy. We were in Amsterdam on a lay over, they checked our papers like three times. The third time I got a little testy. The woman sec person asked me ‘Have your bags been with you this whole trip/”, I looked sternly at her and said “no my bags on loaded on the plane, not in my possession” as in you ditz ask a dumb question get a dumb answer. She moved us on.
    So when I heard him joke about the explosives, I gave him one. Sometimes a dumb question deserves a dumb answer. I mean if you had explosives would you admit it and if you didnt would you say you did. How stupid are they. Check the bags thats what were paying you for with our fed taxes.

  4. Add that to rookie orientation. He meant no harm but that was freakin stupid. Tough lesson learned, we’re on to training camp. GO PACK GO!

  5. I can’t believe they’re wasting court docket time on this. Find some nuns and have them wash his mouth out with soap, like they used to do in grade school.

    According to the article, he was being asked normal security questions. Given that almost everyone else who has ever been on a plane has managed to resist the urge to give a smart*** answer to those questions, I don’t think I’ll give him a pass.

  7. If it’s common knowledge that you can’t yell, “Fire!” in a theatre, how does saying something like that (related to air travel) seem like a good idea.

    Like I say to my employees, “The use of common sense is authorized. No need to seek permission at work or, in your personal life.”

  8. Listen, I get it, this was a very stupid thing to do. Dumb!
    And he suffer the consequences.
    He should get exactly what the law requires in this situation.
    But seriously, there was no Ill intent or malice in his act.
    I’m sure the embarrassment alone should go a long way to correcting his transgression.

    It’s not like he abused and tortured a 7 year old child.
    Where in Minnesota, you’re not just welcomed back by management and fans for doing such a despicable thing, you’re celebrated.
    And you’re even given a raise for having to deal with the inconvenience and financial loss of an NFL mandated suspension.
