FILE - In a March 10, 2003 file photo,Dr. Thomas Butler leaves the Mahon Federal Building in Lubbock, Texas, after a federal judge sentenced him to 24 months in federal prison, fined $15,000, and ordered to pay $38,000 in restitution after Butler's report of missing plague-causing bacteria caused a bioterrorism scare. A senior law enforcement official said Friday, Sept. 3, 2010 that officials decided to shut down much of Miami International Airport Thursday after a database showed Butler, a scientist with a suspicious item in his luggage, had once been charged with illegally transporting bubonic plague.
