Los Angeles, Calif., USA
Mon Jan 30: A young couple was detained at a Los Angeles airport after Homeland Security agents mistook their Twitter quips for threats against the U.S., the two told British media today.
reports that Irishman Leigh Van Bryan, 26, and British citizen Emily Bunting, 24, were reportedly interrogated and spent 12 hours locked up under armed guard.
According to several British outlets, the couple was taken into custody by U.S. Department of Homeland Security agents because of the slang in Bryan's tweets."Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America," one of the tweets read. Bryan told The Sun that in this context "destroy" just meant party.
