An Israeli man was arrested in a New Jersey airport after claiming he had a bomb in his suitcase.

Evan Hess, 44, of Tel Aviv, made the claim to airline officials at Newark Liberty International Airport on Monday in an attempt to have the suitcase removed from his connecting flight to Miami. The flight was oversold and did not have seats for Hess and his family.

Security officials searched the plane for explosives, delaying the flight by three hours.

Police arrested Hess in the terminal while he was seeking another connecting flight.
