CHICAGO -- All charges have been dropped against a man who said an airport security guard mistakenly thought he said he had a bomb in his backpack.
Mardin Amin, 29, has said he told a guard at O'Hare International Airport that the object was a "pump" -- for his penis. But his attorney has said that the guard misunderstood Amin as saying it was a "bomb."
Amin's attorney also said that he whispered to the guard because he was traveling with his mother and didn't want to be embarrassed in front of her, since he was carrying a sexual device.
Amin had been charged with felony disorderly conduct and faced up to three years in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors chose to follow the lead of the Transportation Safety Administration, which recently concluded that the matter did not warrant prosecution, said Cook County state's attorney spokesman John Gorman.
It’s not mine. Really, I’ve never seen it before. How’d that get in there?
That is just as bad as the woman whose vibrator turned on when her bag was being checked at security.
How do you mistake "pump" for "bomb"? Maybe he said "It's Da Bomb!!"
Happens all the time...we had a suspicious object call in a trash can cause a lady got nervous in the security screening line and dumped a gigantic plug in vibrator in the trash, looked like an IED.... nothing like watching the bomb dog officers fish a big old dildo out of the trash in front of everyone
When I was stationed at Elmendorf AFB, Alaska we had a guard (Security Policeman) call in that he found a bomb attached to the antennae field (listening post for Soviet Union). I was the first to respond so when I saw it it appeared that it could have been ligite. It was a coke can with wires hooked up to one of the support beams.
I called it in and EOD was called out to disarm it. Meanwhile I’m in the guard shack talking to the guy that called it in and had the feeling he set it up. It turned out he did and got a six months reassignment to Leavenworth and a dishonorable discharge.
