Bike with band name sticker shuts down airport

A bike with the sticker of a band called This Bike is a Pipe Bomb caused the Memphis airport to be shut down for a while on Monday.

Police searched a man and took him into custody after a bomb scare at the Memphis airport. Officials say an airport police officer found a bike chained outside Terminal C with a sticker on it indicating it was a pipe bomb.

"We established a perimeter around it and had a fire watch in case there was an explosion," said John Greaud, vice president of airport operations. "We had one of our K9 dogs confirm it was not an explosive."

"This Bike is a Pipe Bomb" is the name of a Florida punk band and stickers bearing their name are relatively common on bicycles.
