Police Arrest Man Claiming to Have Explosive Device at Major US Airport

A man in Chicago was arrested Friday after he claimed to have a bomb in his bag at O’Hare International Airport.

Law enforcement officials arrested the man at Terminal 1 inside the airport. No explosives were located.

“A man was arrested in Terminal 1 at @fly2ohare after stating he had a bomb in his bag,” said Tom Ahern, Deputy Director, News Affairs & Communications, Chicago Police. “No explosives were found by #ChicagoPolice Bomb & Arson Detectives.”

There were no other details available from the incident.

On Monday, a military plane carrying a National Guard general was forced to return to O’Hare International Airport after taking off because the plane struck a flock of birds.

“Out of an abundance of caution, the crew safely returned to the airport,” a spokesperson for the 89th Airlift Wing told Fox News. “All members on board are safe and the incident is under investigation.”

Late last week, a flight from Envoy Air, flying for parent company American Airlines, was forced to return O’Hare International Airport shortly after takeoff because a pilot on board became incapacitated and later died.

“Despite heroic efforts by those on board and first responders on the ground, our colleague passed away at the hospital,” the company said in a statement. “We’re deeply saddened and are doing all we can to support his family and our colleagues at this time.”
