Man accused of having knife in airport

ROMULUS, Mich. A Michigan man is charged with possessing a weapon at an airport.

STRIKE ONE!

Authorities say the man attempted to board a flight in Detroit Thursday with a knife hidden in a book.

STRIKE TWO!

They say he had a one-way ticket to his native Yemen.

STRIKE THREE!

The 21-year-old was arraigned yesterday and jailed. If convicted, he faces up to ten years in prison.

YOU’RE OUT!

A spokesman for the Detroit Metropolitan Airport says the knife had been placed in a carved-out section of a book.

His lawyer says the man was returning to Yemen to get married.

Was the knife a gift for his bride-to-be? Perhaps this “bride-to-be” was one of the seventy-some-odd virgins waiting for her martyr?
