ALEXANDRIA — At least one plane was delayed Saturday at Alexandria International Airport after authorities received a call that a woman would try to board with a gun.

A spokesman for the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office said the claim was untrue, the search of a plane and its passengers turned up no weapons Saturday, and the man who made the call was arrested.

Wardell Winbush, of Alexandria, was booked on a charge of terrorizing, Sgt. Tracy Bellino said. Winbush remained in custody Sunday.

“He was our complainant,” Bellino said. “He said a person would be armed with a handgun, and we shut the plane down and after searching it, we found out that was not a true statement.”

Bellino said the plane, bound for Dallas, was delayed about 90 minutes.
