A terminal was partially evacuated and flights were disrupted at LaGuardia Airport Saturday morning, as police investigated a suspicious package.

The disruptions lasted about 90 minutes.

The man was identified as In John Park of Farmington, Michigan.

Police arrested the man, thought to be in his 50s, after swooping on the terminal at around 8:50am local time (1:50pm United Kingdom time).

No explosive was found and no one was injured, the station reported.

"Due to police activity, LGA concourses A and B at Terminal B are not accessible and passengers should expect delays", the airport tweeted.

A representative for the Port Authority told the Associated Press (h/t Seattle Times) that airport had returned to its normal operational schedule by 9:30 a.m.

A traveler has been captured at LaGuardia Airport after experts say he debilitated a specialist at the Spirit Airlines ticket counter.

Commuters and passengers are also cautioned to allow extra travel time as traffic is at a standstill getting into the airport from the Grand Central Parkway.
