LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jet-setting poker player Dan Bilzerian has been arrested in Los Angeles on a Las Vegas criminal complaint that accuses him of possessing bomb-making materials.

Police records show the 34-year-old playboy was arrested Tuesday night by officers at Los Angeles International Airport, and he was released Wednesday afternoon.

A criminal complaint filed last month by the Clark County District Attorney accuses Bilzerian and another man, Jeremy Guymon, of two felony counts of possessing bomb-making components.

The charges stem from a Nov. 4 Las Vegas police investigation of a field of debris left over from an explosion in a remote desert area.

The two men's attorney, David Chesnoff, says they're looking forward to their day in court.

Arraignment in Las Vegas Justice Court is set for Jan. 9.
