Security incident causes delays at LaGuardia

- The evacuations of screening checkpoints at LaGuardia Airport caused confusion and delays on Saturday morning.  The airport tweeted out that Terminal B flights were disrupted because of the incident.

The screening checkpoints for Concourses A and B and the pre-security area adjacent to Concourses A and B were closed for more than an hour.

Airport officials did not release information on exact cause for the disruption but there were reports that a man made a bomb threat to an airline employee and was arrested.

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