Security officials at Rochester's airport aren't laughing at a joke made by a New York City doctor on Friday.

Doctor Hany Mossad-Boktor says he was only kidding about having explosives in his luggage. After he made the joke, though, the TSA and Monroe County Sheriff's Office brought in bomb-sniffing dogs to search his bags.

The dogs didn't find any evidence of explosives, but the doctor was arrested and charged with falsely reporting an incident, which is a felony.
