'Suspicious' passenger questioned at BWI
An airplane passenger was questioned at BWI airport Thursday night after crew members reported that he had acted suspiciously, airport officials said. The man was later released.
Authorities released no information about what the man had done on the plane to arouse suspicion.
The pilot of Continental ExpressJet Flight 2699 from Newark to BWI-Marshall called ground authorities reporting the behavior as a precautionary alert, said Jonathan Dean, an airport spokesman.
The 6 p.m. flight landed without incident. Once at the gate, the man was taken to Maryland Transportation Authority police station for questioning, said Sgt. Jonathan Green, a police spokesman. The man spoke with police and later was interviewed by the FBI.
He was released without charges about 9 p.m., Green said.
Dean and Green declined to comment further. FBI officials from the Baltimore field office could not be reached immediately for comment.
