Airport Says Antics Raise Security Questions
A couple of guys who's flight was cancelled at DFW recently
found some unorthodox ways to keep themselves entertained ... and
it was all caught on airport security cameras.
Thing is, not very many people seem to care.
The video posted to the Vimeo website shows Joe Ayala and Larry
Chen racing wheelchairs, entering the kitchen of a restaurant, and
generally cutting up in a nearly empty terminal at DFW. The local
CBS affiliate KTVT reports on their blog that while security
experts are yawning at the video, saying that the pair were
ticketed passengers and through security ... at least one airport
board member says it sends a bad message. "It gives the perception
that the airport is sitting out there unguarded," said Board Member
For its part, the airport management does not know if it will
file charges against the two. A spokesman said the video does raise
security questions, and that it is being investigated.
