LaGuardia terminal evacuated in NYC, 1 in custody

NEW YORK New York City's LaGuardia Airport has been reopened to passengers following a bomb scare.

Authorities say the airport's main terminal was evacuated after a man entered with a fake bomb in a bag.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman John Kelly says the terminal was evacuated at around 5:30 a.m. Saturday after the man approached security in the airport's C concourse.

It wasn't clear if the man made a threat, but Kelly said security officials say he "was just acting crazy."

Police say the device in the man's bag was a few batteries and wires, but was not dangerous.

Passengers began re-entering the terminal shortly before 9 a.m.
