FAM Drops Bullets, Blows Cover

Gimme Back My Bullets

A federal air marshal Thursday decided it wasn't worth the trip after he dropped his bullets while boarding a flight at Chicago's Midway Airport.

The marshal had just arrived on a Southwest flight from Philadelphia and was boarded a plane to Kansas City when a clip full of ammunition dropped to the floor. Bullets scattered everywhere.

"He picked the bullets up immediately,' Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Whitney Eichenger told the Chicago Tribune. But, "since he was no longer traveling incognito, he decided not to continue on the flight to Kansas City,' she said.

There was no need to screen the other boarding passengers, she said. Still, there was a 45-minute delay on board the flight as the crew, the marshal and other authorities checked the situation.

When asked about the slip of the clip, FAM spokesman Doug Adams told the Trib,  "There was not a problem with this mission.'
