Parts of a terminal at Los Angeles International Airport were briefly evacuated when a man made threats that turned out to be false.

LAX spokesman Albert Rodriguez said that a man walked into the Tom Bradley International Terminal shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday and made threatening statements, prompting a partial clearing of the terminal's upper departures level. Rodriguez says only the sections outside security were affected.

Airport police took the man into custody, conducted a security sweep and found nothing.

Passengers returned to the terminal less than a half-hour later.

Rodriguez says there were few if any delays to outbound flights.
