||| Click 2 Houston |||

Bomb squads reported that everything was clear after a scare at Terminal D of the Bush Intercontinental Airport. The scare began when police were alerted to a man's claims that he had explosives in his bag.

Airport officials said the man was an "impatient passenger at a ticket counter" he didn't want to wait so he made up a threat thinking it would force airport employees to let him through.

The bad decision led to Houston police bomb squads being deployed at the airport to investigate the man. The claim that he had explosives in his bag was made around 8:45 a.m. and b 10:30 a.m. the airport was cleared and reopened.

Bill Begley, a spokesman for the Bush Intercontinental Airport said, that Terminal D was immediately cleared and the investigation had "minimal impact" on the airports daily operations. Begley also said the bomb squad investigation occurred during a slow period of the daily traffic.

No flights were delayed but it is unclear if the man will face charges.
