"Duh, is this the way to the plane?"

A 40-year-old Alpharetta man who hopped on a moving luggage carousel at Miami International Airport and rode it into a secure area told the AJC on Friday that “it was just a dumb, boneheaded play.”

Now Bradley Ray Bromelow is facing a trespassing charge and possible civil penalties from the Transportation Security Administration.

Bromelow caused a stir in the baggage claim area of Concourse J when he got on the carousel about 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

The Miami-Dade Police arrest report, obtained by WSVN-TV, stated:

“Bradley Ray Bromelow layed down on carousel belt #5 … moving passenger luggage for arriving passengers. Bromelow proceeded on belt through open doorway to the airport operating area, while filming passengers watching him. Bromelow … admitted trespassing into the airport operating area while ‘showing off’ in front of his friend.”

In an interview with the AJC, Bromelow said it was a stupid prank he sincerely regrets.

“We were here for a birthday party, we were videotaping,” he began. “It was just a dumb, boneheaded play. The security is way tight. They totally freaked out and I learned my lesson about goofing around. “I just want to put it all behind me.”

Bromelow posted bond early Friday.

“I just want to say I’m completely embarrassed for myself and my family,” he added.  “I’m just a regular guy and I’m embarrassed big-time and I just wish it never happened.”

The TSA’s Sari Koshetz released this statement to WSVN: “This was an excellent example of the layers of security keeping the public safe. The individual was immediately stopped by an airline worker and challenged as to whether he belonged in the secured area, which he obviously did not. The individual was then held until law enforcement responded. TSA will investigate further to see if any civil penalties will be pursued.”

A THOUGHT: Wow, I just turned 40 too. Is this one of the things I am supposed to have on my bucket list?
