Man arrested with knife in shoe at Detroit airport

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say an airline passenger was arrested in Michigan after being found with a knife concealed inside the bottom lining of one of his shoes.

The Transportation Security Administration says the knife was found Sunday during security screening at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus.

The TSA says airport police took possession of the knife and arrested the passenger. His name wasn’t released.

The TSA says the knife should’ve been placed in checked luggage.

The Associated Press left messages with TSA spokesman Michael McCarthy and airport spokesman Brian Lassaline seeking details about the passenger.

Wayne County prosecutor’s office spokeswoman Maria Miller says her office would have jurisdiction if the airport police send a report. Miller says the case also could be handled by federal authorities or considered an ordinance violation.
