BOSTON (AP) - A Massachusetts man charged with saying he had a bomb in his bag while aboard a plane scheduled to take off from Boston’s Logan International Airport has been barred by a judge from air travel.

Dennis Campbell, of Uxbridge, remains free on $250 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday to making a false bomb threat.

Prosecutors say the 55-year-old Campbell was having trouble getting his bag in an overhead bin on Wednesday night when he told a flight attendant it was because “there’s a bomb in there.” The flight was delayed 50 minutes.

Campbell’s attorney called the episode a misunderstanding and a poor choice of words, adding that his client actually said that passengers should be careful because the bag might “come out like a bomb and hit somebody on the head.”
