CNBC crew with fake bomb arrested at Newark Airport, source says

Newark Liberty International

Members of a television crew have been arrested at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey after they filmed themselves attempting to get a fake explosive device through an airport security checkpoint.

"Inert device" is a technical term for a fake bomb.

Transport officials said a bag carrying an item with "all the makings of an improvised explosive device" was found before it had cleared security.

A picture of the device obtained by CBS2 News shows that the device appeared to be composed of wires and portions of a vacuum cleaner. The crew members told law enforcement that they hired an engineer to construct it. In addition to the crew getting stopped for the fake bomb on Thursday, we have also reported on Bad Boys II actress Gabrielle Union getting patted down because of her hair weave, TSA scanners being used to find hidden artwork, and even a weird moment in which security pulled Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West off of a plane for not going through proper TSA channels.

The crew was charged with multiple offenses and later released. According to the Port Authority Police of NY and New Jersey, the nine suspects said they worked for a TV station, but cops didn't find press credentials.

CNBC is based in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, which is approximately a 30-minute drive from Newark Airport.Endemol Shine Group is a Dutch production company behind "Staten Island Hustle", which will launch in the spring.

It's not known which TV network the group may work for or which TV show they may have been filming the encounter for.

The Port Authority could not immediately be reached for comment on the incident.

The show is one of three reality programs the Comcast-owned channel is adding to its primetime lineup, including "BYOB: Be Your Own Boss" premiering February 27, and "Deadly Rich", which will debut in the summer.

CNBC's promotional material for "Staten Island Hustle" describes it as following "a group of animated, life-long friends and businessmen from Staten Island who've yet to come up with an idea or product too far-fetched for them to invest in".

The network referred all questions to the Endemol group on Thursday.

The production company, Endemol Shine North America, issued a statement saying it was investigating the incident and co-operating with the authorities.

"While this process is ongoing we are unable to comment further but in the meantime, we sincerely apologise for any disruption caused".
