Officials say TSA security screeners found a toy hand grenade inside a passenger's bag around 12:30 p.m. at a checkpoint and thought it looked suspicious, so the bomb squad was dispatched.

Officials cleared the suspicious item and reopened the terminal shortly after 2 p.m.
The man who owns the bag is being questioned.
Passengers who were flying out of Terminal 2 had been told to screen at Terminal 1, which was causing major delays.
