A man who allegedly claimed he brought a bomb to a Florida airport is being held on $1-million bail.

Zeljko Causevic, 39, told security personnel at Jacksonville International Airport that he had a bomb in his backpack Tuesday night, authorities said, prompting an evacuation.

Transportation Security Administration officers only found two batteries and a microchip in the bag, but he was arrested and the airport was shutdown for five hours, stranding travelers, the Associated Press reports.

Causevic didn’t speak when he appeared in state court Wednesday on charges of making a false report about planting a bomb.
