Boston Celtics’ flight arrives in Oklahoma after bomb scare

The Associated Press - December 12, 2016 11:53 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Boston Celtics got a scare when they were told of a bomb threat on their private flight to Oklahoma City.
The Boston Globe reports the plane landed safely around 5 p.m. Saturday at Will Rogers World Airport, where players were told to leave their bags and proceed to their hotel.
The FBI’s Oklahoma City field office said late Saturday that a thorough search of the aircraft “did not locate an explosive device” and that the agency is investigating the incident.
The Boston Globe says only a few team executives were aware of the threat during the flight and that others in the party were informed upon landing in Oklahoma City, where the Celtics faced the Thunder on Sunday.
The team departed for Oklahoma City from Bedford, Massachusetts.
