Captain’s log, stardate 0612
On my way through security at LAX, when pulled aside for a pat down. Alas, my pants failed me, and I was not able to beam them up in time, resulting in onlookers getting a glimpse of uranus.
Thankfully, tasers were set to off.
The actor was queuing at Los Angeles International Airport to catch a flight to South Africa when he was singled out for a search by officials.
He had decided to wear loose-fitting clothing for the journey and did not have a belt holding his pants up – and he was left red-faced when they fell down, exposing his underwear.
Shatner says, “It was awful to have people looking at me with my pants down, probably the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me… It was a long flight so I wanted to wear loose clothing because I didn’t want anything to bind me.”
In other words, he lost command..of his pants.
My theory is his pants couldn’t contain the awesomeness of the man who is William Shatner.
For the record, William Shatner has a sense of humor, and tweeted this about the incident.
My wardrobe malfunction @ LAX is making the rounds online For those that were witness I apologize. For those that kept staring shame on you!

I always thought if William Shatner had a wardrobe malfunction, it would involve his toupe.
