A man was arrested outside Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday for carrying a slew of weapons including knives, tools and a piece of rebar. But as he was being cuffed, he tried to explain to officers that he has a famous uncle.
The unidentified man was seen walking around the airport holding the weapons. After a brief chase, cops were able to apprehend him and take him down. As he was on the ground being handcuffed, he told police that Samuel L. Jackson is his uncle. It’s not known if it’s true or whether he thought that name dropping his famous relative would get him out of trouble, but he was arrested and charged with possessing a weapon and resisting arrest. His “Uncle” has not commented on the arrest.
