HOUSTON – A big black object drew a full-scale response from the bomb squad on Tuesday in downtown Houston.

Someone spotted the object with wires coming from it sitting near a Metro bus stop at Smith and Dallas.

Police shut down several streets for 90 minutes while the bomb squad checked it out.

The object turned out to be an air brake that fell from an 18-wheeler. Someone moved it out of the street and left it there.
