Michael Shafermeyer, 30, was arrested Saturday boarding a flight at Lambert Airport Saturday.

After spending 3 ½ days in jail, he spoke with News 4 to give his side of the story.

Shafermeyer said he was flying to Maryland to get married and because he was anxious about the wedding and nervous about flying, he had a few drinks before getting to the airport.

His friends describe him as a guy with a non-stop, quirky sense of humor.

When a flight attendant asked him to close his laptop after boarding, Shafermeyer says he was just trying to make a joke when he asked her, “Are you the one who checks for shoe bombs?”
