State police arrested an Uxbridge man at Logan Airport Wednesday night, after he allegedly made a bomb threat against an United Airlines flight.

Dennis Campbell, 55, said in front of other passengers aboard United Airline flight 439 that he had a bomb in his bag, police say. The flight, scheduled for a 6 p.m. departure to Chicago, was delayed roughly 50 minutes as a result.

Campbell was charged with making a false bomb threat and held on $250 bail. He is set to be arraigned in East Boston District Court on Thursday.
