    A Twin Cities terror suspect who once worked at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport told another suspect he had the ability to build rockets that could take down planes at 2,000 feet. That testimony came from an FBI agent during a hearing on Tuesday for Abdirizak Warsame. It's to determine whether he should remain in jail pending the outcome of his case. Warsame was arrested earlier this month and is the 10th young Minnesotan to be charged in the last year with trying to join ISIS. FBI Agent Daniel Higgins testified that in April of 2015, Abdirizak Warsame boasted to...

The rental car ramp was reopened at...

    BOISE, Idaho -- Former Republican U.S. Sen. Larry Craig aims to fend off a federal election lawsuit against him by arguing his infamous July 11, 2007, Minneapolis airport bathroom visit that ended in his sex-sting arrest was part of his official Senate business. Craig is hoping to avoid repaying $217,000 in campaign funds the Federal Election Commission claims he misused to defend himself. The FEC sued Craig in June in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., alleging he converted the campaign money to personal use by spending it on his legal defense after he was accused of soliciting sex in...

    It’s going to be “Constitution 101″ for state police in Maryland, who will be undergoing training on the First and Fourth Amendments as part of a settlement of a lawsuit over the illegal arrests of pro-life protesters there. Confirmation comes from officials with the Alliance Defense Fund, who argued that the officers’ decision to arrest, take into custody and strip-search the protesters simply wasn’t allowed. The ADF noted that the settlement with Maryland State Police will include “training on rights protected by the First and Fourth amendments to the U.S. Constitution.” “Under the terms of the settlement, Maryland State Police...

The man apparently responded by showing the employee the stuffed animal and saying, "This is all you need to see," according to airport officials. The man then fled. Airport police notified the Transportation Security Administration and worked with Delta security officials to look for the man in and around the building,...

    An imam and a youth coordinator at a Minneapolis mosque were prohibited from boarding a flight Saturday morning to Saudi Arabia as part of a spiritual pilgrimage, an attorney for the mosque confirmed Sunday. The attorney said it's likely the men are on a federal "no fly" list because they and the mosque have been connected by rumor to a number of missing Somali men whose families fear have returned to their East African homeland to fight in that nation's civil unrest or to receive terrorist training. The FBI, which has been investigating alleged links between some in Minneapolis' large...

  • Man Arrested In Same Sting As Craig Is Acquitted

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) ― A Minneapolis man arrested in the same airport bathroom sex sting that netted U.S. Senator Larry Craig has been acquitted. Thirty-nine-year-old Vince Tuzon used a similar argument to Craig in pleading not guilty. Tuzon claimed he wasn't guilty because the police officer initiated the foot-tapping. A Hennepin County jury agreed with Tuzon. His lawyer says Tuzon feels he was set up after being "essentially bombarded with overtures" while in the bathroom. A Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman says they were "disappointed" with the verdict. Craig was arrested June 11 in the same operation. The Idaho senator first pleaded...

    WASHINGTON - The Senate Ethics Committee said Wednesday that Idaho Sen. Larry Craig acted improperly in connection with a men's room sex sting last year. In a letter to the Republican senator, the ethics panel said Craig's attempt to withdraw his guilty plea after his June arrest at a Minneapolis airport was an effort to evade legal consequences of his own actions. Craig's actions brought discredit on the Senate, the letter said.
