Bloomington: A plane leaving the Minneapolis to St. Paul International Airport headed for Tokyo on Tuesday had to be sent back to the gate and deplaned after a knife was found on board, the Metropolitan Airports Commission says.

Delta flight 619 was leaving the gate Tuesday afternoon when a knife fell out of an overhead bin.

A flight attendant informed the crew, and the plan returned to the gate. Everyone then deplaned and all passengers were re-screened.

Officials aren't saying what type of knife fell out of the bin, and it is not known if anyone has been arrested in the incident.

Transportation Security Administration officials say the plane was swept, with negative findings. The passengers were then allowed back on the plane, and it left the airport at about 4:20 p.m.
