CHICAGO - DECEMBER 9: A traveler sleeps on a baggage carousel at Midway Airport after flights were canceled during a snowstorm in the early morning hours of December 9, 2005 in Chicago, Illinois. Earlier in the evening a Southwest jet attempting to land in snow slid off the runway, broke through a barrier fence and stopped in the middle of a street. A six-year-old boy riding in a car that was struck by the plane was killed. (Photo by Carlos J. Ortiz/Getty Images)

Remember those fun merry-go-round rides you used to enjoy when you were a kid? An airport luggage conveyor is not the adult equivalent.

A man was arrested Thursday for being a big kid and jumping on the conveyor at Miami International Airport.

Bradley Bromelow, 40, faces trespassing charges after he laid his 240-pound frame on the luggage conveyor belt and rode it behind the security wall. Airport personnel spotted the human body bag and quickly detained the man.

When police arrived, Bromelow told them he did it to impress some friends, who were taping his luggage ride. According to his Facebook page, Bromelow lives in Atlanta. His activities include "Trying to stay out of the doghouse."

Looks like he fell short on that one.

After a quick explanation to Bromelow that he weighed in over the baggage limit, cops put him in 'cuffs and hauled him away. And he didn't even have to pay a quarter for the ride to jail.

Enjoy your visit to the Magic City, human luggage.
