Port Authority Police spokesman Al Della Fave says a 64-year-old British man walked past a distracted TSA agent at an exit area in Terminal B on Thursday.

The terminal was evacuated for about an hour and passengers had to be rescreened.

The Transportation Security  dministration says the agent has been removed from screening duties while the incident is under investigation.

A Rutgers University graduate student slipped past a Newark security checkpoint to see his girlfriend off two years ago. That forced a shutdown of a terminal for several hours and delayed flights around the globe.
