From National Terror Alert.
An Indian documentary film maker was arrested at the Houston airport on last Friday, for allegedly carrying suspicious Islamic "jihad literature", brass knuckles and $10,000 in cash.
The man was arrested at George Bush Intercontinental airport after “acting suspicious,” when airport screener’s thought they saw a possible handgun in a scan of his baggage. Upon investigation, the investigators found the brass knuckles, a manual for a handgun and Islamic literature in checked luggage.
From another article:
State District Judge David Mendoza lowered Kumar's bail from $50,000 to $5,000 after learning more details about the case and that prosecutors were willing to let him plead to time served for unlawfully carrying a weapon in an airport.
Attorneys for Kumar said he has surrendered his passport while he mulls the deal. He does not want a criminal record to interfere next time he visits the United States, his attorney Grant Scheiner said.
"I think that everybody realized that he is not a threat. He's a peaceful man," Scheiner said. "He was here to visit the Hindu Congress of America, to deliver a lecture. It was about an interfaith discussion between Hindus and Muslims about the harms of terrorism."
Note: There is apparently another Vijay Kumar who is a Republican congressional candidate.
