BOSTON (KHNL) - Was it an art project or a fake bomb? An MIT student from Maui was arrested Friday at Boston's airport while wearing a computer circuit board with wire and lights, has now been released on bail.
19-year-old Star Simpson, who is from Kihei and studying now in Massachusetts, pled not guilty at her arraignment on charges of disturbing the peace and possessing a hoax device.
Simpson is a sophomore at MIT. Police displayed the black hooded sweat shirt at a press conference.
A police commander says Simpson told officers that it was a "piece of art," and that she wanted to display it.
She told police she'd gone to the airport to greet someone arriving on a flight from Oakland. Officials verified that someone by that name had arrived.
