CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a man suspected of making a bomb threat at Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids has been taken to a hospital for evaluation and will be charged.

Police spokesman Greg Buelow (BEE’-loh) says the OnStar vehicle communication service contacted police about 3 a.m. Wednesday to report that a man had just called, saying he was on an airport road and intended to blow up the airport. The man was seen driving away from the airport and soon was pulled over.

Buelow says no explosives were found in the car or on airport property. He says charges are pending against the man, whom he would not name.

Airport spokeswoman Heather Wilson says the airport was placed on lockdown for about two hours, but no flights were affected.
