(CNN) -- A plane bound from Las Vegas to Los Angeles returned to McCarron International Airport on Saturday after a report of suspicious activity by a passenger, a Transportation and Security Administration official said.

Ann Davis, a TSA spokeswoman, would not detail the nature of the alleged suspicious activity, but said the passengers were deplaned and rescreened.

The passenger in question was being interviewed by law enforcement Saturday night, Davis said. After the plane was swept, the other passengers were cleared to fly to Los Angeles.
