There was another security breach at John F. Kennedy Airport. A passenger exited a terminal through an unauthorized door to have a cigarette.
Fox 5 News reports that the man shouldn't even have been beyond security because his boarding pass was for the next day.
It happened at 3 p.m. on Thursday at Gate 14 in Terminal 8. Sources tell Fox 5 News that Wifred Isidore, 42, of Spring Valley, N.Y. was using a boarding pass for an American Airlines flight to Haiti for September 7.
A TSA agent had checked the pass, but not closely enough, allowing Isidore through a security checkpoint and out to the boarding area.
Isidore was waiting in the boarding area when he sounded the alarm, literally. He went through an unauthorized exit door to go outside the terminal for a cigarette.
A Port Authority spokesman says that when airline employees asked him for identification, Isidore ran. Employees chased and tackled him and held him until Port Authority police officers arrived.
For now, Isidore is charged with criminal trespass.
A representative with the TSA says they are looking into the incident.
