A man who purchased a ticket on a flight bound for Saudi Arabia was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport after a stun gun and similar items were found in his luggage. The TSA detected the stun gun, can of pepper spray and three stun batons, all of which were in their original packaging. He indicated he had the weapons "for his own protection." Authorities do not believe the man, Mohamed Hefni, is a terrorist.
