JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man accused of bringing a hoax bomb to Jacksonville International Airport on Oct. 1 is being sent to North Carolina for a mental health evaluation.

Zelijko Causevic, 39, is charged with filing a false report about planting a bomb and with possession of a hoax bomb.

On October 1, Causevic allegedly told airport security he had a bomb in his backpack. The airport was closed down with passengers evacuated. The airport was reopened five hours later.

Causevic on Nov. 18 was deemed incompetent to stand trial. In federal court on Tuesday, a judge was told Causevic was being transported to the federal Butner Medical Center for both a mental and physical evaluation.

The outcome of his mental evaluation will determine if he was sane at the time and his ability to stand trial.
