David Warner faced an embarrassing situation while undergoing the mandatory security check at the Los Angeles International Airport.
Accompanied by his wife Candice, the veteran Australia opener recently attended the wedding of Miley Cyrus’ mother Tish Cyrus, who tied the knot with Australian actor Dominic Purcell in Malibu on August 25.
After attending the event, Warner and his spouse were set to board a flight to their homeland when the cricketer was stopped by the security staff as the metal-detecting machine sensed something suspicious.
Warner had to undergo further check after the machine detected something on his testicles, revealed Candice.
“David went through the first one where you walk through and it started beeping. So, they (security) then ushered him to the full body scanner. He puts his arms up and it beeps again,” Candice spoke about the event on Australian radio station Triple M, as quoted by the Sun.
The turn of events left everyone in splits as people present there could clearly see a hotspot on Warner’s private parts, with the result appearing on a giant computer screen attached to the machine.
“The security man came up to him and said, ‘Look, we are going to have to sort this out’. But I was left confused wondering what is going on downstairs or what is going on with my husband’s package,” Candice recalled.
However, the couple boarded the flight to Australia once the airport security personnel gave Warner a clean chit.
After listening to Candice’s account, Dr Sam, who serves as Triple M’s Rush Hour medical expert, guessed that Warner might have got a piercing on his private parts.
However, Candice dismissed the speculation as she said: “No, no, there’s no piercings.”
David Warner was last seen in action during the five-match Ashes Test series against England. The southpaw was far from his best in the iconic series, amassing 225 runs from 9 innings at a below-par average of 25.
Warner will be next seen in action during the ODI series against South Africa, starting on September 7 in Bloemfontein. He has also been picked in Australia’s preliminary squad for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, slated to be held in India from October 5 to November 19.
