Toy Grenade Shuts Airport Down For Hours


Multiple flights were delayed Thursday after TSA agents at an airport in Houston spotted what they thought was a grenade in a checked bag.

The device discovered at Hobby Airport turned out to be a novelty grenade, according to a local ABC affiliate, which reported that it was found inside a 17-year-old Boy Scout’s bag.

At least 18 flights were delayed as a result of the incident, airport spokesman Bill Begley told CNN, though no flights were canceled because of the incident.
