Fbi Dismiss Reports Teen Planned To Fly Hijacked Jet Into Cyrus Gig
LATEST: The Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI) has denied reports a teenager they've arrested on suspicion of planning to hijack a plane had intended to crash the aircraft into a Miley Cyrus concert. The unnamed 16-year-old was detained by agents for allegedly smuggling handcuffs, duct tape, rope and other items onto a flight from Los Angeles bound for Louisiana on Tuesday (22Jan08). However, officials insists reports he planned to hijack the jet and direct it into a gig by Cyrus' alter-ego Hannah Montana taking place in L.A.'s Lafayette Cajundome are false. FBI spokesman George Bolds says, "His stated intent was to hijack the airplane and commit suicide. He did indicate he intended to die in Louisiana. It appears he had a ticket to Louisiana."
