After making a joke about bombs at Los Angeles International Airport, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis ended up in police custody Sunday, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.

According to the report, Davis asked a flight companion whether she “remembered to pack the explosives” during the check-in process at the Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter, resulting in his arrest. Authorities have since released Davis, who has a May 3 court date.

In a statement to ESPN, the Packers said they are aware of the situation involving Davis and have no further comment.

Davis joined the Packers in 2016 as a fifth-round draft selection. He played primarily on special teams during his NFL career as a returner, averaging 22.8 return yards on kickoffs and 12.0 yards on punts. As a wideout, Davis has caught eight passes for 94 yards and a touchdown during his first two seasons.

How the arrest impacts Davis’ immediate future remains to be seen. The Packers’ offseason program begins April 16.
