Dandan was charged with possession, acquiring and transporting a weapon of mass destruction, while Fells was charged with three counts of manufacturing a weapon of mass destruction and one count of possession of such a weapon.
Dandan got the bomb from his room mate, a 39-year-old identified as Derrick Fells, media reported.
Officers with the CMPD's bomb squad later confirmed that the explosive device in question was a homemade pipe bomb. WNCN reports that the FAA has suspended Dandan's access to the airport while the FAA and the FBI are investigating the case.
Paul George Dandan, 30, was arrested Friday, a week after police received a 911 call about a person with a bomb and went to his house in Charlotte, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
A police statement indicates Dandan did not have access to restricted areas of the airport in his capacity as an air traffic controller and only worked inside an offsite tower.
Though the FBI is aiding local law enforcement in the investigation, early reports indicate federal charges against Dandan and Fells are not expected. He admitted to detectives that he made the bomb in order to use it against a neighbor.
In March 2015, Dandan was arrested and charged with assault on a female.
The FAA confirmed to NBC Charlotte that Dandan's access to the airport was terminated following his arrest Friday afternoon. Fells changed his mind about using the weapon, and gave it to Dandan, according to police, who began investigating the case November 3.
