Brad Jayakody, 30, was somewhat taken aback when he was told that he would not be able to enter the plane wearing what he was wearing. When he asked to see the security chief, he was allegedly threatened with arrest.
The issue, it seems, was not with Brad’s sense of style but due to the fact that Optimus Prime was pictured holding a gun. Brad did the right thing and changed his t-shirt, but was still warned that he would be arrested if he changed back into the offending item.
Fortunately for Brad, he got his t-shirt back and got to board his flight without being arrested – but you’d think that the folks who are supposed to be keeping the terrorists off the planes could find something better to do with their time. [The Sun]
