A 39-year old Jacksonville man is under arrest for allegedly making a false report about planting a bomb at the Jacksonville, Florida airport yesterday.

Authorities say Zeljko Causevic told security screeners he had a bomb in his backpack, but they found only a luggage scale with a microchip inside, as well as a remote control device he called a detonator.

The incident, which began around 5:30 p.m., resulted in a full airport evacuation, as well as the cancellation of flights in and out of the airport.

Passengers were displaced for about five hours.

A second man was arrested after officials said he began acting suspiciously. Authorities, however, later said the second man was not connected to Causevic.
