The Road star was watching his beloved Argentinian side San Lorenzo play Newells Old Boys on a laptop as he waited at Dulles airport, and was overjoyed when one of the players scored.
However, his response to the goal prompted an interrogation by airport officials.
In an article posted on San Lorenzo’s team website, Mortensen writes, “I screamed GOAAAAAAL with all my soul, and started jumping around the place like a frightened deer among the passengers and their suitcases.
“People can’t understand why am I screaming ‘PIPI!’ (a player’s nickname) over and over again, and whether it’s because I’ve p**sed myself or maybe I got hurt someway.”
ET Online reports the security guards eventually let Mortensen go, warning him they would throw him out if he caused another disturbance.
