BOMB THREAT MADE AT PHL  
  PHILADELPHIA—A domestic dispute led to a bomb threat that forced security to sweep a flight at Philadelphia International Airport, an airline spokeswoman said. Nothing suspicious was found and the plane was returned into service. Air Wisconsin spokeswoman Annette Daly said a passenger waiting to board a flight from Philadelphia to Norfolk, Va., had received threatening text messages Tuesday morning. Ms. Daly said passengers had been waiting to board the plane, but never got on.

   Authorities said the plane was taken to a remote location at the airport. Security swept the aircraft and found nothing. The flight was canceled. Philadelphia police say the man who made the threat is in custody in Virginia.
