This guy is an idiot. However, a felony charge is WAY over the top. It's a friggin' knife.

Exactly! Where is the felony? Fine him $250 and charge him with a petty misdemeanor, and start checking people until the alarm doesn't go off. These security personnel should be charged with failure to follow protocol.
