briefly questioned a passenger Tuesday who alarmed other passengers when he used the airplane’s bathroom several times on a flight from Charlotte, North Carolina to Denver, 9Wants to Know has learned.
The passenger on U.S. Airways flight 1525 was not arrested. Law enforcement is trying to confirm the passenger had a medical condition. He is of Middle Eastern descent.
A K-9 unit was brought on board the plane as a precaution, 9Wants to Know has learned, but it found nothing to concern airport law enforcement.
“Per standard procedures, law enforcement and TSA personnel met the flight. The passenger was questioned and released and the plane was swept, both with negative findings,” TSA spokesperson Carrie Harmon said in a statement.
All other passengers were deplaned to continue to their destinations, Harmon said.
