Paula Abdul was allowed to board a plane at the Las Vegas airport without passing through a security checkpoint, prompting all passengers and luggage to be screened when they landed in California, officials said Friday.

A worker led the ``American Idol'' judge and a companion around the mandatory screening process before they boarded a Southwest Airlines flight headed to Burbank, Calif., Thursday afternoon, said Elaine Sanchez, a spokeswoman for McCarran International Airport.

She said she could not confirm reports that the employee was trying to help the pop star avoid a swarm of fans.

Federal Transportation Safety Administration officials were alerted to the security breach while the plane was in the air, TSA spokeswoman Jessica Altschul said.

The Southwest employee was simply unaware that the company's "You are now free to move about the country" slogan wasn't to be taken literally. We can't all be English students.

I know why I fly Southwest, by Paula Abdul? She can't afford to fly on an airline where they actually assign seats? Have First Class? Meal service? What is she, cheap?



I bet Cowell bought her the ticket...

I hate for this to come off race related but when I first read the thread title I thought "Abdul, of corse someone named Abdul would cause such a security breach"

I bet Paula doesn't even remember a thing. Did you see her on the elimination show? She was so drunk/doped up that she didn't even make sense, not that she ever does, but this was embarrassingly incoherent (and hysterical to watch :D )

Me thinks it was actually Barry Bonds in drag at the airport and not Paula.

It's obvious that Southwest needs a security overhaul.

I'd suggest they dump their entire infrastructure and go with Chuck Norris.

She should hook up with Broadway Joe.

You can't use Chuck Norris for airport security: all of the women would land at their destination pregnant.

Paula Abdul did not cause this incident -- the employee who did not follow protocol did. I hope that employee is removed from any role that would allow him or her to do that in the future with much prejudice. Maybe we can rely on Chuck Norris to handle that part.
