The airport was back to normal operations after 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Scholz was arrested by the Lubbock International Airport Police Department on a charge of terroristic threat, which is a third degree felony. He is being held on $50,000 bond.

If convicted, Scholz could face a punishment of two to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
