Kim Kar­dashian and Kanye West by­pass se­cu­rity at JFK air­port

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY -

The US Trans­porta­tion Se­cu­rity Ad­min­is­tra­tion (TSA) is in­ves­ti­gat­ing a se­cu­rity breach in­volv­ing celebri­ties Kim Kar­dashian and Kanye West at JFK air­port, New York City. The two celebri­ties were al­lowed through ma­jor check­points with­out any se­cu­rity screen­ing, but later were taken off the air­plane for ad­di­tional screen­ing, which de­layed the flight by nearly an hour.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, an ex­cited air­line em­ployee took the two celebri­ties past the ma­jor check­points at the air­port with­out go­ing through se­cu­rity pro­to­col. A TSA spokesper­son said that the two were es­corted by the air­line em­ployee through a non-pub­lic area in or­der to pro­vide ex­pe­dited ac­cess to their domestic flight. “In do­ing so, the air­line em­ployee vi­o­lated se­cu­rity pro­to­cols by per­mit­ting the trav­ellers to by­pass the TSA se­cu­rity check­point.” By­pass­ing of se­cu­rity check­points en­tirely is not per­mit­ted.

The agency state­ment con­tin­ued: “TSA of­fi­cials learned of the vi­o­la­tion and con­ducted a pri­vate screen­ing of the two pas­sen­gers in the area of the jet­way. The pas­sen­gers were cleared to board their flight, which de­parted af­ter a de­lay of ap­prox­i­mately 50 min­utes. TSA is ac­tively in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.”

Kim, who is a re­al­ity star, is ex­pect­ing her first child with boyfriend West in July, and was fly­ing home with the rap­per af­ter a trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they en­joyed the city’s an­nual Car­ni­val cel­e­bra­tion.
