No Charges Filed In Airport Bomb Hoax

No charges will be filed against a Maine couple arrested at San Jose International Airport for packing materials that looked like a bomb when their luggage was X-rayed. Paul Donahue and Teresa Wood, of Machias, Maine, were arrested Tuesday on felony charges of possession of a false bomb. Transportation Security Administration workers discovered a snowboot with a battery pack and a power strip attached to it in the couple´s luggage. With it was a note calling security workers uniformed puppets and accusing them of bringing the nation closer to a “fascist police state.”

The couple were removed from their Delta flight to Atlanta and arrested.

The district attorney´s office says it´s not filing charges because the suitcase did not contain a fake bomb.
