Authorities Investigating Fake Bomb Scare At Baton Rouge Metro Airport
An early morning bomb scare turns out to be nothing more than a fake. Operations at Baton Rouge Metropolitan airport have returned to normal after someone left a fake bomb inside a car parked on the second floor of the airport's garage. Police say they were doing a routing patrol when they found the car with its windshield smashed, and the suspicious looking device inside. Airport spokesman Bill Profita says it was a group of sticks or tubes, wrapped in tape with a clock attached. Profita says flight operations weren't affected by the scare.
