No matter how frustrated you may get, it's important to watch what you say at an airport. A Kentucky woman learned this first-hand at the Greenville-Spartanburg International Arport Saturday afternoon.

GSP said the woman, Laura Jones, was reportedly frustrated with a customer service interaction. 

She was asked if she had any hazardous materials in her bag, and she replied that she had a bomb.

Police were immediately contacted, and Jones was arrested.

A screening of the bag revealed nothing dangerous inside, but she was still arrested for making the threat and taken to the Spartanburg County Detention Center.

Airport officials said that they take threats such as this very seriously.
