The woman with Davis was not arrested, police said.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis has discovered that it's a really bad idea to test the sense of humour of airline staff after his joke about explosives resulted in an arrest.

Airport police spokesman Rob Pedregon said Monday that Davis was booked on a charge of making a false bomb threat at an airport and released with a summons to appear in court. Davis said yes and then turned to his female traveling companion and asked if she remembered to pack the explosives, officials said.

Davis was reportedly answering security questions at the check in counter when he made the joke about being in possession of a bomb, according to USA TODAY.

"The Packers have been attentive to the matter involving Trevor Davis". "We are in the process of gathering more information and will refrain from making any further comment as it is an ongoing legal matter".

He was selected by the Packers in the in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft from the University of California. Davis ranked third in the National Football League in punt return average last season at 12 yards a return. The player could be subject to an NFL disciplinary hearing, per the league's rules.

A similarly misguided comment got a Colorado hockey referee arrested in October 2012 and caused the evacuation of Anchorage International Airport.

Friesema, 44, was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
