Newark, NJ: 9 CNBC television crew members were arrested by authorities following an  attempted to bring a roller bag through security containing a motor, pipes and wires — “all indicators of an improvised explosive device” — while other members covertly recorded the encounter.

Port Authority officials stated – the discovery of the fake bomb by Transportation Security Administration personnel caused large numbers of Port Authority police officers to be pulled away from security duties “to deal with a threat that was, simply, made up.”
