The incident forced the closure of the airport for about 30 minutes this morning, but one official says there’s no connection to terrorism.

The official says the man, who is 24, was apprehended within five minutes and is undergoing psychiatric evaluation. The SUV tested negative for any type of hazardous material.

An airport spokeswoman says the airport was closed out of an “abundance of caution,” affecting about 15-20 aircraft.
