(AP) Man arrested at LAX with weapons to be in court
A man arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after authorities found he was carrying a suitcase full of weapons could find out Friday whether he will remain behind bars or be freed.

A detention hearing is scheduled for 28-year-old Yongda Huang Harris before U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Abrams. Harris could be remanded back into custody if he’s determined to be a flight risk or a danger to the public.

Harris was arrested last week during a stopover trip from Japan on his way to Boston. He was wearing a bulletproof vest under a trench coat and also wore flame-retardant pants and knee pads. Authorities also found a smoke grenade, knives, a hatchet, body bags and other suspicious items in his checked luggage.

Harris hasn’t cooperated with federal officials.
