Man arrested after allegedly making bomb threat at NYC's LaGuardia Airport

The man claiming to have a bomb at La Guardia Airport was taken into custody while the Bomb Squad looked through his bag

LaGuardia Airport's screening checkpoints for Concourses A and B and the adjacent pre-security areas were reopened after a person left a "suspicious bag" behind Saturday morning that was later determined not to be a threat, authorities said.

Although he walked away from the altercation, he returned with a bag which he allegedly told the employee contained an explosive device. He said charges were pending against Park.

Joe Pentangelo, a spokesman with the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, said the threat was made by a passenger at about 7:15 Terminal B. He said the airport was functioning normally about two hours later.

The airport's Twitter page published several posts around 8 a.m. regarding police activity at the airport's Terminal B, causing several delays and disruptions.

Confusion prevailed as people were evacuated to the sidewalk outside the terminal and traffic around the airport was diverted, passengers said.

Ed Kazmierczak, 36, of Ridgefield Park, N.J., said he and his family had arrived at the airport around 7:20 a.m. and were walking into the terminal when a NY state trooper with a rifle stopped them, telling them there was a "situation" inside.

Things got back to normal about 9:30 a.m. Concourses C and D were operating normally during the incident.
