Australian cricket veteran David Warner has been caught up in an embarrassing incident at Los Angeles International Airport.
Warner caught the attention of airport security when he walked through their scanners and was promptly ordered to undertake a full body search.
Warner’s wife, Candice, explained the details of the body search on Triple M’s Rush Hour, saying the scan detected a hot spot on her husband’s … umm … nether region, which sparked the concern.

The Warners were in the US for the wedding of Australian actor Dominic Purcell (of Prison Break fame) and manager/producer Tish Cyrus (who is also the mother of famous pop singer Miley Cyrus).
After the Malibu wedding, the couple were heading home, when things didn’t go quite according to plan.
“All of a sudden his balls lit up,” a highly amused Candice told listeners, while comparing the moment to cricket’s Hot Spot technology.

“I’d never seen this about my husband. I didn’t know he had hot balls,” an amused Candice said
Fortunately for David, he was given the all-clear after the search and was allowed to board the plane.

Triple M’s Rush Hour medical expert Dr Sam wondered whether a secret piercing set off the hot-spot X-ray.
“No, no, there’s no piercings,” Candice said.
Warner, 36, is hoping for a hometown farewell in the Sydney Test in January next year.
But there have been ongoing questions about his place in the side in all formats of the game.
He has been picked in the Australian team for the 50-over Cricket World Cup that starts in October and will be played in India.
However, he is one of many big names who will miss the T20 series in South Africa, along with Pat Cummins (wrist), Mitchell Starc (groin), Steve Smith (wrist), Josh Hazlewood, and Cameron Green.
The first of three T20s against South Africa gets underway on August 31, while the five-match ODI series begins in Bloemfontein on September 7.
