Badge-less Dulles Worker Flees TSA

CHANTILLY, Va. -- A worker at Washington Dulles International Airport has been arrested after running away from a security official who questioned the man about not wearing his security badge.

Jermaine Christopher Newland, 33, of Beltsville, Md., is charged with unauthorized entry for violating airport security regulations, airport spokesman Rob Yingling said. Newland is being held in Loudoun County without bond on the misdemeanor charge.

Newland, who works for United Airlines, fled Tuesday morning after a Transportation Security Administration inspector noticed he was in uniform without a security badge. Newland was caught shortly after in an airport concourse after officials contacted United Airlines.

There was no threat against the airport, TSA spokeswoman Kristin Lee said.
