US man arrested after bomb threat aboard airplane: Report
Chicago: A California man was arrested on Saturday after he locked himself in the bathroom of a Michigan-bound airplane and claimed he had a bomb, local media reports.
The man was arrested after the plane landed in Traverse City, Michigan and all of the passengers are safe, WPBN reported on its website.
A bomb sniffing dog was being brought in to check the plane, the station added.
The scare on the United flight from Chicago led authorities to shut down Cherry Capital Airport sometime after 10 am (1500 GMT) and the man was taken into custody shortly before 11 am (1600 GMT), the Traverse City Record Eagle reported.
A Transportation Security Administration spokesman said a statement would be issued shortly.
