FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested an Ohio woman Tuesday after they accused her of making a bogus bomb threat at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Deputies responded to Terminal 1 at around 1:05 p.m. after TSA reported a security alert from a carry-on bag belonging to Dorion Young Davis of Dayton, who turned 26 years old on Sunday, according to an arrest report.

Authorities said while being patted down by a TSA agent, Davis was heard saying: “Whole time they missed a whole bomb in my bag!”

Detectives have not said what item caused the security alert.

Davis was arrested and later transported to BSO Main Jail without incident.

She is facing a charge of making a false report or bomb threat against the government or publicly owned property.
