CHARLOTTE – A Charlotte Douglas International Airport employee faces charges after officials say they found a dangerous weapon in his possession.

The Federal Aviation Administration confirmed that air traffic controller Paul Dandan’s employee access to the facility has been revoked as this case is investigated. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is also assisting. 

We are told the 'weapon of mass destruction' was not at the airport. The 30-year-old was taken into custody just before 6:00 p.m. Friday.

He is held at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg County jail on a $15,000 bond.
