    A Southwest flight from Houston Hobby to Dallas Love Field had a bit of a scare Monday morning.

    A passenger on board Southwest Flight 1636 found a box cutter in an overhead bin and alerted the flight crew.

    The captain then requested all 96 passengers and the plane be re-screened by security.

    Nothing turned up in either screening.

    The flight was eventually canceled and the passengers were all ticketed on other flights.
