I don't travel a lot, and when I do I usually travel to places I can easily drive to. That said, I do know there are a few things you shouldn't do when you travel. And probably the main thing you shouldn't do is make jokes about explosives in your luggage while you're trying to board a plane.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver and kick returner Trevor Davis was arrested at LAX yesterday for making a joke about a bomb that no one found funny, especially police.
Davis was checking in for his Hawaiian Airlines flight to Honolulu when the agent asked the routine question, "Do you have any explosives in your luggage?" Davis reportedly answered, "Yeah," and then turned to his companion and asked, "Did you pack the explosives?" His friend answered "no" and told Davis to stop joking around, but it was too late. The agent notified police and Davis was arrested for misdemeanor criminal threats. He was released on $15,000 bail. The Packers and the NFL could also consider disciplinary action.
I dunno, call me whacky, but you'd think that would be an obvious no no.
Another thing you probably shouldn't do while traveling is call in a fake bomb scare about someone you're pissed off at. But then again, I'm not comedian T.J. Miller.
Miller was arrested Monday for calling in a fake bomb scare on an Amtrack train in New York. He's charged with "intentionally conveying to law enforcement false information about an explosive device." Or in regular person English, "Being a dipstick."
Other passengers on the train said Miller appeared intoxicated and was arguing with a woman in a different row.
So I can't stress this enough....
1. DON'T tell your boarding agent you packed explosives in your bag.
2. DON'T call in fake bomb scares regarding the woman you just got into an argument with.
Or be like me and just drive everywhere you travel to.
