MacArthur Airport bomb scare suspect charged
A man who allegedly told a flight attendant he had a bomb on a Southwest plane at MacArthur Airport Sunday has been charged with falsely reporting an incident.
Officials say Draco Slaughter was detained after he said he had a bomb in his carry-on.
The plane had just arrived from Chicago. The flight was delayed two hours while cops searched the jet. Officials say they found nothing.
The 75-year-old Chicago man appeared in court yesterday and was held on $50,000 cash or bond. He is expected to appear in court again on June 11.
