NEW YORK (AP) - An attorney for a man who set off an alarm at
New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport while returning
from Haiti says his client "just walked through the wrong door."

Jules Paul Bouloute (boo-LOHT') has appeared in court and has
been released without bail.

Bouloute was arraigned Sunday on charges including criminal
tampering. He didn't enter a plea.

An official familiar with the case against Bouloute says the
57-year-old told police he went to the wrong door by mistake while
trying to exit the Queens airport. The official wasn't authorized
to comment publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The Saturday security breach delayed dozens of flights.
Travelers had to leave the terminal and wait for hours to be
re-screened.
