Concealed cigar cutter forces Kentucky airport evacuation
HEBRON, Kentucky (May 12, 2002 4:51 p.m. EDT) - Police evacuated the main terminal at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport for three hours on Sunday after a passenger tried to board a plane with a cigar cutter in his boot. |
When a screener at a security checkpoint found the small knife, the man ran into a secure area of the terminal, said Kathleen Bergen, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Transportation.
A bit old, but a little airport security humor is always in order.
