Airport uproars prompt arrests
Two separate incidents at St. John's International Airport this week required police intervention.
Around 12:45 a.m. Thursday, security at the airport called the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary to deal with a man causing a disturbance.
Police said the suspect, 29, was drunk at the time. He was taken into custody under the Detention of Intoxicated Persons Act and held until he sobered up.
Then, around 12:40 p.m., police were called again to deal with another man, 36, who was causing a ruckus.
That suspect faces two counts of uttering threats as well as a charge of causing a disturbance. He was released from custody on an order to appear in provincial court at a later date.
