Man Detained in Detroit Airport Security Breach

Man Detained in Detroit Airport Security Breach

Quote:
DETROIT (Reuters) - Hundreds of passengers were evacuated from Detroit's Metropolitan Airport Wednesday after a man breached a security checkpoint inside a terminal that serves as the main U.S. hub of Northwest Airlines.

``It appears that it was unintentional,'' said airport spokesman Brian Lassaline. ``In fact, this gentleman, after going through the security area, proceeded to his gate in Concourse F and sat down.''

Lassaline said the man was taken into police custody after reaching his gate. Video surveillance equipment, which showed the man stepping around a secondary screening area rather than waiting in line to pass through it, prompted authorities to evacuate two concourses inside the terminal.
