Smoking at airport ends in arrest

An intoxicated traveler was arrested after using an emergency exit to take a smoke break at Indianapolis International Airport Monday night. Airport police say Michael Rogers of Bloomington lit a cigarette inside Concourse A. When a security staff member told Rogers he was not allowed to smoke in the airport, he became uncooperative and opened a secure door to a gate bridge. Two Delta ramp workers stopped Rogers before he could get to the tarmac. He was arrested for public intoxication, criminal trespass and other charges.
