A man dressed as Zorro was sitting outside of a terminal at LAX on Sunday night.
Inside someone thought they heard a “loud noise.”
And we’re off to the races.
People shouting “RUN!”
People took off running. Not sure to where or away from what – but run they did.
Police, SWAT, and anti-terror teams were called in to end the attack.The order was given to ground all flights.
Police found the masked stranger sitting on a bench outside the terminal and approached ready to take him down.
“It’s a plastic sword!” shouted Zorro.
“Get on the ground – NOW!” was the police response.
A woman shouts, “He didn’t do anything!”
More people running. The terminal was evacuated and placed on lock-down.
A thorough examination of Zorro revealed it was indeed a plastic sword. Apparently he was just a guy in LA dressed in a costume – go figure.
Police say the loud pops were a “false alarm.”
Everything is settled down and operating as usual at LAX.
Welcome to our “New Normal.”
