    A man allegedly bypassed a security checkpoint at LaGuardia Airport Monday by entering a terminal through an exit.  

    TSA and Port Authority police said they never lost sight of the man and he was soon taken into custody. 

    Officials said it was not necessary to rescreen passengers, though screenings at the terminal were temporarily interrupted. 

    Authorities were questioning the man Monday afternoon.
