Aldon Smith was allegedly detained by police for yelling ‘bomb’ at LAX. TMZ writes that Smith was involved in a loud argument with an airport worker at his gate, and the Sacramento Bee adds some corroborating details from the police report:
The suspect then became belligerent and uncooperative with the process and with the TSA agent, making a comment indicating that he was in possession of a bomb before proceeding towards the gate area. Los Angeles Airport Police made contact with him at the gate and he was positively identified as the person in question. Once again the male subject became uncooperative and he was detained and taken into custody by Airport Police and is currently being transported to LAPD for booking.
Witnesses told the Sacramento Bee that the suspect is Smith; the 49ers defender was arrested both last year and in 2012 for DUI, and faced felony weapons charges stemming from a night in which he was stabbed at his own house party.
Update: The 49ers have released a statement: “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.”
