Touchy and prone to panic, ain't they?

LAS VEGAS — A Carmichael man jailed in Las Vegas on suspicion of causing a loud noise that sparked panic and travel delays Sunday at Harry Reid International Airport had been arrested at the airport less than 24 hours earlier for allegedly causing a disturbance near a ticket counter, a police official said Monday. 

The sharp sound of a door closing or a trash can toppling — apparently mistaken for gunfire — caused passengers to abandon security lines about 4:30 a.m. Sunday. More loud noises reverberated through the airport's busy Terminal 1 as metal posts were knocked over in the chaos, Las Vegas police Officer Larry Hadfield said.

Suspicion of causing a loud noise? What the fuck kind of charge is that?

  1. A hate crime, obviously.

  2. The article said that the suspect was arrested on a burglary charge at the airport.
    Got into it with police earlier and returned with enough drama to upset flights.
    The idea of arresting someone for a loud noise had me laughing, and if I'd been arrested for that.. howling.

    1. There is no law on "Making Security People Look Stoopid," ergo, "causing a loud noise."

  4. So they renamed McCarran for Harry Reid.....sure enough the wikipedia bio for Pat McCarran now has the obligatory antisemitism charge....and as a democrat he opposed Roosevelt's new deal and cooperation with the Soviets in WWII....no greater sin... Atlanta has a nasty habit of the same thing for roads, airports, etc.

  5. That charge is probably just an excuse to lock up the asshole for felony stupid.
