ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - A lockdown at part of Detroit Metropolitan Airport after a man went through a closed security checkpoint has been lifted.

Airport spokesman Michael Conway tells The Detroit News that the man went through the exit lane of a closed passenger screening checkpoint at the McNamara Terminal at the airport in Romulus about 9:50 p.m. Wednesday, ignoring a security guard’s warning to stop.

Conway says the man was identified through security footage and taken into the custody of airport police. WXYZ-TV reports he’ll likely be charged with violating an airport ordinance.

Parts of the terminal were locked down for about an hour as Transportation Security Administration officials and airport police investigated. Conway says the terminal was fully cleared shortly before 11 p.m. and the lockdown delayed about 10 flights.
