Man Barricades Self In Family Restroom At Sea-Tac, Gets Busted After Long "Rest"
Port of Seattle Police arrested a man after he brought in the new year by barricading himself in a family restroom around 5pm on Friday, Jan. 1st.
The man, who at one point claimed to be armed, then at another demanded an airline ticket so fly “somewhere,” gave up after police negotiators did their jobs and got him to surrender after a two and a half hour standoff.
No weapon was found, no airline tickets were handed out, and the man was taken into custody.
However, the incident did cause police to evacuate part of the airport as a precaution.
No one was hurt and no flights were delayed, and police don’t consider this a “terrorist” incident.
There’s no word yet on whether the man had any intestinal distress, nor if he simply clogged the toilet and wanted “privacy” as he tried to fix things up for the next user.
