LOS ANGELES — San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has been arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after authorities said he became belligerent during a security screening and threatened that he had a bomb.

LAPD Sgt. Michael Fox said Smith was booked Sunday afternoon.

Airport police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said the 24-year-old player was randomly selected for a secondary screening at Terminal 1. Ortiz said Smith became uncooperative with the process and told a TSA agent that he had a bomb before walking to the gate. When airport police officers caught up with him, Ortiz said Smith became uncooperative and was taken into custody.

A video on TMZ.com shows Smith exchanging words with an officer as he was being handcuffed.

The 49ers said in a statement that the team was disappointed to learn about the incident.
