Sergio Romo was detained in the Las Vegas airport on New Year’s Day for allegedly “becoming belligerent” with a TSA officer and for not showing his identification. He was cited for violating airport rules and released.  And that, it seems, is the end of the story:

The Associated Press reported that a screening panel used prosecutorial discretion to drop the case, according to the Clark County District Attorney’s office. Romo had been scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 12 and faced the possibility of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Romo apologized after the incident. An incident which, apparently, wasn’t all that big a deal all things considered.  I presume that, with the exception of two oblique paragraphs in the middle of some mid-spring training feature on Romo, this will be the last we hear of it.

    TSA is such a joke, I dont blame the guy for not wanting to be molested by them.

    That’s too bad. The trial would have been hilarious.

    Church- thanks. I’m on the mobile app, so I don’t have any of those buttons. I’ll try the blog. Thanks again.
