3. John Dialinos, head of security at Hopkins Airport, is put on unpaid leave after being arrested for public indecency and harassment for calling tanning salons and making lewd remarks while sitting outside with his pants unzipped. Police refuse to say whether they confiscated any non-travel-size bottles of lotion from his car.
