Samuel L. Jackson’s name came out of the mouth of a man arrested at Los Angeles International Airport over the weekend after he was caught carrying multiple weapons.
According to TMZ, an unidentified man got busted Sunday for toting knives, a long piece of rebar and a handful of tools through the airport.
In the video of the arrest obtained by TMZ, he is heard saying, “My uncle’s Samuel Jackson. Samuel L. Jackson!”
Law enforcement sources say cops were alerted to a suspicious man hanging around the airport with a bow and arrow. When cops approached, he reportedly took off, which set off a brief chase.
The situation ended when cops tazed the man and apprehended him. The man was taken to a hospital by ambulance, apparently having suffered injuries during the arrest.
Samuel L. Jackson has yet to comment.
