New York, NY —
A security officer at Newark Airport has been reassigned after a security breach at the airport this weekend. On Sunday, a man walked the wrong way through a security checkpoint at Newark grounding flights for hours. Surveillance video shows the man entered through an exit, but he left the terminal through a different exit about 20 minutes later. The man has not been identified or located. But the Transportation Security Administration says an officer assigned to the area of the breach has been reassigned to non-screening functions during the investigation.
