A Japanese man has been arrested after he allegedly tried to board a Honolulu-to-Tokyo flight with a stun gun in his carry-on bag.
A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court charges Hiroki Suzuki with carrying a concealed dangerous weapon while attempting to board All Nippon Airways Flight 1051 on Friday. An affidavit says Suzuki hid the stun gun in a small black canvas pouch in his carry-on bag.
A Transportation Security Administration official found the device during an X-ray scan. Suzuki allegedly told FBI agents he bought the stun gun in Japan about a year ago for his personal protection.
A federal judge released Suzuki on bond so he can attend his grandfather's funeral in Japan but ordered him back for a hearing in two weeks.
