Bomb Squad Sweeps (Delta Air) Plane, Man Questioned (San Antonio)
Associated Press
08.20.2006, 01:15 AM

Bomb-sniffing dogs swept a Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta upon landing Saturday after authorities said a passenger tampered with a smoke detector and moved ceiling panels in a lavatory.

The passenger, a San Antonio man who was not identified, was being questioned by federal authorities at San Antonio International Airport, FBI spokesman Erik Vasys said.

"We're just trying to determine what his intentions were," Vasys said. "It may be a simple issue which does not result in an arrest."

The passenger on Delta Flight 6492 was overheard being "disruptive" in the lavatory by flight attendants and had spent an extended amount of time there, said Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Jennifer Peppin.

5. FBI: Detained Passenger Not Suspicious
(snip)
``He was cooperative during the interview,'' FBI spokesman Erik Vasys said Sunday. ``He allowed a search of his house, a search of his person, a search of his belongings. Nothing of a suspicious nature was found.''

Flight attendants reported he had been ``disruptive'' in the bathroom and had spent an extended amount of time there, the Transportation Security Administration said. In addition to the smoke detector being tampered with, authorities said ceiling tiles were moved.

(snip)
Vasys said it appeared someone tried to disconnect the detector, but it was still working and wasn't damaged.

``It wound up being the flight attendant's word against a passenger's, and this guy turned out to be not suspicious at all,'' he said.
