Man arrested after breaching OIA checkpoint
ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A spokeswoman at the Orlando International Airport says security screenings are back up and running after someone breached a checkpoint gate.
Carolyn Fennell, an OIA spokeswoman, said gates 1-59 were breached by a man at around noon on Saturday.
Orlando police identified the man as Ryan Mills, 37.
Officials say he was taken into involuntary protective custody under a Baker Act.
Fennell said while Mills was being arrested, he reached into his pocket, prompting someone in the screening area to yell that Mills had a gun.
Fennell says no gun was found, but people did panic and rush through the security area.
No one was hurt, but screening had to be halted and everyone had to be re-screened.
