Long before 9/11, saying the word “bomb” at an airport was a no no. So when someone does it in 2014, they must be one hell of an idiot.
Such is the case with San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith, who did just that.
Per a Los Angeles World Airport police spokesperson:
“At approximately 1400 hrs, a 24 year-old Aldon Jacarus Ramon Smith, a resident of San Jose, California, was going through Terminal 1 screening where he made a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb. Los Angeles Airport Police made contact with him in the gate area where he became uncooperative. After conducting their investigation, LA Airport Police took suspect into custody and transported him to LAPD-Pacific division where he was booked for California Penal Code 148.1(a) – False report of a bomb threat.”
Nice job Aldon… Don’t you just love the NFL offseason?
The 49ers released a statement after learning of the incident:
“We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith. As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment.”
