LAPD detained San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith at Los Angeles International Airport after he indicated he was in possession of a bomb.
According to police public information officer, the incident happened as the man later identified as Smith was going through screening and was randomly selected for secondary screening.
Smith allegedly became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, leading to him making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding toward the gate area.
Airport police made contact with him at the gate as he allegedly became uncooperative again and was detained and taken into custody.
Smith can be heard in the video insisting he did nothing wrong and to “record that shit.”
Los Angeles airport police and TSA also have a shady reputation.
