Security guards at Heathrow Airport in London arrested a man identified as Eustache Dauger, a French National, when he attempted to board a plane bound for Paris while wearing a large iron mask. The mask had only two eye slits, a small opening near the mouth and was attached to Dauger’s head with a large 17th Century style padlock.
Daugher was stopped as he attempted to board the plane and taken to a security office at the airport for further questioning. Witnesses in the area at the time of the incident, said they overheard Daugher telling the security agents that he was headed for the Bastille in Paris. The airport was shut down for nearly an hour until clearance was given to continue normal operations.
