— Raleigh-Durham International Airport authorities revoked an employee's security badge and ended his ability to work at the airport Monday after he breached airport security, officials said.

Jonathan Gregg, 37, was cited with disorderly conduct, airport spokeswoman Mindy Hamlin said.

Gregg escorted a friend of his, Amy Farmer, past RDU's security checkpoint in Terminal 2, and Transportation Security Administration workers immediately stopped them, Hamlin said.

Farmer, 31, was cited with second-degree trespassing.

Hamlin called the incident a case of bad judgment, noting there was no security threat and no flights were affected.
