Trigg County, Ky. Magistrate Arrested At Airport

After allegedly telling a Southwest Airlines ticket agent there was a bomb in his friend's bag, a magistrate from Trigg County, Kentucky was charged with giving a false report at Nashville International Airport.

Officers responded to the Southwest ticket counter at the airport about a possible bomb threat on Sunday.

According to an affidavit, John Thomas Gray told officials he did say that to a Southwest employee, but he added he had been joking.

He was placed under arrest, and his bags, along with his friend's bags, were checked by officials and a K9. Authorities also checked the areas the two had walked through.
