Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis learned the hard way that you just can’t make jokes in an airport - at least not about blowing it up that is! What was supposed to be a harmless comment may have altered Davis’ career with the Packers or even the NFL for that matter. More importantly, it could have an impact on his life.

Joke goes wrong

According to a TMZ Sports report, the 24-year-old Davis was reportedly arrested at the Los Angeles International Airport Sunday after he told an attendant at the Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter that he had smuggled in a bomb while being asked various security questions.

Davis was joking at the time, however, no one else appears to have been laughing.

The TMZ report also mentioned that Davis allegedly turned to a female companion and said, "Did you remember to pack the explosives?" She apparently replied, "No" and tried to get him to stop saying those type of things in the airport. Davis went on to say he was “just kidding.”

Well, just kidding or not, Davis was immediately taken into custody and booked for misdemeanor criminal threats. He has since been released, but now one has to wonder if this will put a damper on his career with Green Bay.

Packers confirm incident

Waking up early on a Monday morning to find out one of the players in your organization was arrested for making a bomb threat probably wasn't on the Packers daily planner for today.

Nevertheless, the Packers have confirmed that they have knowledge of the incident, and it can't be sitting well with the front office. It is tough enough to make it in the NFL, but Trevor Davis may have just made it even tougher to get back on the gridiron, at least with the Packers that is.

According to Bleacher Report. while Davis has been released, it is still undecided as to whether the Los Angeles District Attorney's office will bring any more charges and/or prosecution against Davis.

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

The former UC Berkley star was selected in the fifth-round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Packers.

Davis isn't a starter at Green Bay, but he has made several contributions to the team. Davis has hauled in eight passes for nearly 100 yards and has scored a touchdown since being drafted by the Pack. Last season, Davis mainly played on the special teams' punt and kick return squad. He did well, averaging nearly 23 yards per kickoff return.

While we don't know the tone of voice Davis used, or what his demeanor appeared to be, could he have been just trying to make things not so tense in a job that is full of tension? Nevertheless, he should have known better. With the way the world is today, you just can't say those type of things, even if you are joking.
