No one told airport cops about terror drill

Passengers at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport were treated to the alarming sight of police with their guns drawn running through the terminal to surround a man believed to be smuggling a bomb through a security checkpoint.

Unfortunately, nobody at the Transportation Security Administration had bothered telling the cops it was just a routine drill with a fake explosive device.

So the checkpoint screener successfully spotted an apparent bomb and hit the terrorist-alert silent alarm.
