 BOSTON, MA -- A scare Tuesday night in Boston on the one year anniversary of the deadly Marathon bombings.  One person, described by police as "emotionally disturbed" is now in custody for questioning.  That person is believed to be connected to two abandoned backpacks that were discovered in the street near the finish line of next week's race.

The bags were detonated by police, and turned out to be nothing dangerous.  Police closed part of Boylston Street for several hours.
