Video: Apparent suicide by cop attempt resolved without injury

By PoliceOne Staff

A man claiming he had a bomb in a box at Los Angeles International Airport was hit with a TASER and quickly subdued by Los Angeles Airport Police. Video of police detaining the man can be seen below. According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, investigators say the suspect may have been trying to commit suicide by cop.

The incident took place after the suspect snatched a box from an unidentified passenger at the check-in counter and then began screaming that the package contained a bomb. The terminal was evacuated for about 20 minutes while officers and police dogs checked the package, which did not contain explosives.
