FBI look for man who spilled mercury on LA subway platform

Law enforcement officials say they want to question a man seen on videotape spilling a small amount of mercury onto the platform of an L-A subway station. FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says there's no evidence to suggest the actions were terrorist or criminal acts. But she says police, the FBI ,and other members of a multi-agency terrorism task force want to ask the unidentified man why he was carrying mercury and why he spilled it. Video footage showed the man entering the downtown Pershing Square station on December 22nd and spilling a vial of liquid onto the platform. The man appeared startled and walked to a Metropolitan Transit Authority call box, where he reported the mercury spill. An LA County sheriff's hazmat team confirmed the substance was mercury and removed it.
