In New York City, La Guardia Airport suffered delays that lasted hours due to the fact that Scott Mcgann, 32, was trying to blow the airport up. Port Authority police spotted Mcgann with a backpack, and a device that closely resembled a bomb and detonator. Cops then saw Mcgann push the detonator button before another officer was able to throw the back pack and wrestle Mcgann to the ground. The entire airport was forced to close for three hours, causing delays across New York and the United States. Mcgann was taken to Bellevue Hospital; located at 462 1st Ave, New York, NY 10016. Further evaluation proved Mcgann mentally unfit to withstand a trial. He is being charged with criminal tampering in the 3rd, making bomb threats and placing a false bomb. If convicted he could face up to seven years in prison.If you are facing any type of criminal charges, you should call a New York Criminal Defense Lawyer immediately.
