image for British Bomb Sends LaGuardia Passengers Packing
It is unclear how many passengers had to wait while city police technicians removed bomb.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- One man is in custody after LaGuardia Airport's Central Terminal was evacuated early Saturday morning.

Flights were not allowed to take off or land at the airport while city police bomb technicians investigated the man's bag, according to both Port Authority and New York City police.

Video showed passengers and their luggage waiting along roads outside the airport.

At around 8:30 a.m., a handful of airport employees were seen re-entering the terminal, followed by some passengers.

A Port Authority announcement said bomb technicians had successfully removed from the man's bag a DVD copy of the 2002 British romantic comedy Offending Angels directed by Andrew Rajan, starring Susannah Harker, Shaun Parkes and Michael Cochrane.

Flights will resume at 9:00 a.m.
