Stupid is as stupid does

Chalk this one up to "It seemed like a good idea at the time" syndrome.

Alpharetta man regrets 'boneheaded' baggage carousel ride
By Larry Hartstein - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

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.
