An Atlanta airport carousel’s luggage was allegedly stolen last week, according to a report, and a former NFL football player who was warming the bench was detained.
Ex-defensive back Damian Parms, who had short stints with three professional teams, was charged with theft after he allegedly snatched a phone charger from a bag at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, police said, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.
Body cam footage obtained by the television station shows Parms discussing the bizarre incident with authorities in the baggage claim area.
He’s accused of picking up a piece of luggage and taking the charger from it before leaving the rest of the items in a different carousel of the airport, Fox 5 reported.
He then allegedly left the facility, only to return a few hours later and be apprehended by police in the luggage area.
An officer in the footage asked Parms if he flew that day.
Parms reportedly replied no with the officer then noting, “OK, so you had no business even coming to a carousel.”
