Passenger Next To Detained Man Tells Story
The scare at Cherry Capital Airport today left many passengers shaken up. Fourteen people were on board the United Express flight, including eleven passengers and three crew members. Police spent the day questioning many of them, and some also told us their story. In fact, we are the only news station to get the story straight from the passenger sitting directly next to the person of interest. Bob Crosby was sitting next to the man who was detained. Crosby says he didn't think there was anything suspicious about the man until police started questioning passengers. Then Crosby says he remembered seeing the man with an object he told police he did think was suspicious. In the five hours that he spent working with police, Crosby says the police did not find the object he described. Erika Waddell and photojournalist Justin DePrekel have the story.
