A Carmichael man jailed in Las Vegas on suspicion of causing a loud noise that sparked panic and travel delays Sunday at Harry Reid International Airport had been arrested at the airport less than 24 hours earlier for allegedly causing a disturbance near a ticket counter, a police official said Monday. The sharp sound of a door closing or a trash can toppling — apparently mistaken for gunfire — caused passengers to abandon security lines about 4:30 a.m. Sunday. More loud noises reverberated through the airport's busy Terminal 1 as metal posts were knocked over in the chaos, Las Vegas police Officer Larry Hadfield said. Stefan Mathias Hutchison's alleged role causing the sound was not immediately described.
