Woman Gets Past N.Y. Airport Security With Stun Gun, Knife
DENVER (AP) - A woman passed through security screening at New York's LaGuardia Airport with a stun gun and knife in her purse - but later discovered the mistake herself and alerted authorities. |
The woman realized she was carrying the items after a short layover in Detroit and on her way to Denver.
"She immediately went, 'Oh, my God, I'm not supposed to have these here,' and called the flight attendant over," said Spirit Airlines spokeswoman Laura Bennett.
The pilot alerted Denver International Airport; police met the plane at the gate and took the woman into custody for questioning. She was released without charges.
