CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - A man was arrested Monday afternoon after making a "bomb statement" while being screened at Bradley International Airport, State Police said.
State Police say Jordan Rickard, 26, of Charlotte, North Carolina was chosen for further screening at the security checkpoint.
When a TSA agent asked if he had anything in his pockets, he responded, "yes, I have a bomb."
He was arrested on several charges. Two Southwest flights were delayed because of the incident, but everything is now back to normal.
Rickard's girlfriend was identified and is also being interviewed by troopers.
Rickard will be held on bond to appear in Superior Court to answer the charges.
