Police arrest man who claimed to swallow explosive and drove to Mineta Airport – NBC Bay Area
A gunned down man claiming to have swallowed an explosive device drove a car to the south side of San José International Airport on Sunday morning, police said.
Police said they responded to the security breach at 7:25 a.m., took the suspect into custody and determined that his claim about an explosive was unfounded.
He appeared to be having a mental health crisis and would be receiving services, police said on social media. The suspect will be jailed on several counts.
Police did not disclose any information about the suspect’s place of detention or how he was able to access the area. More details will be released later today, a spokesperson said.
There were some delays at the airport during the incident, but police said operations had since returned to normal and there was no continuing threat to public safety.
