Newark airport argument causes security scare

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

An argument between two employees at Newark-Liberty International Airport started a security scare that ended with no charges being filed.

A United Airlines employee was taken into custody for questioning after the incident Wednesday morning.

The Port Authority says one of the workers called police after the other man said something like, "I have a surprise for you." 

Police eventually caught up with the man, who was driving a vehicle he was assigned to drive, outside of Building 344 just before 10 a.m.

Port Authority Police found no weapons in the truck and no traces of explosives and was allowed to go free.

Building 101 was evacuated as a precaution during the incident.  It was unclear if any flight operations were affected by the police activity.
