Bomb Scare at LaGuardia Airport

Get ready for even longer security lines: An apparently drunk man at New York City's LaGuardia Airport caused a scare early Saturday morning when he told police he had a bomb in his bag. On closer inspection, it turned out the so-called bomb was a fake—the man was carrying a homemade device of batteries and wires, constructed to look like a bomb. While the NYPD Bomb Squad inspected the device and emergency vehicles swarmed the area, hundreds of passengers were evacuated from the terminal and even rushed off planes waiting to take off on the runway. The man was arrested, and passengers were allowed back into the Central Terminal around 9 a.m.
