A former bench-warming NFL football player was arrested for allegedly swiping luggage from a carousel inside an Atlanta airport last week, according to a report.

Ex-defensive back Damian Parms, who had short stints with three professional teams, was charged with theft after he allegedly snatched a phone charger from a bag at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, police said, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

Body cam footage obtained by the television station shows Parms talking with authorities in the baggage claim area about the bizarre incident.

He’s accused of picking up a piece of luggage and taking the charger from it before leaving the rest of the items in a different carousel of the airport, Fox 5 reported.

He then reportedly left the facility only to return a couple hours later where police spotted him in the luggage area.

An officer in the footage asked Parms if he flew that day.

Parms reportedly replied no with the officer then noting, “OK, so you had no business even coming to a carousel.”

Parms was signed by the Atlanta Falcons after he went undrafted in 2015 out of Florida Atlantic University. After the Falcons released him in 2015, he was signed by the Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers.

It doesn’t appear Parms ever played in an NFL game.
