IANS  |  Los Angeles 

An unidentified man, who claimed that actor Samuel L. Jackson is his uncle, was arrested at the airport here with weapons.

The man was taken into custody on Sunday with multiple weapons including knives, a long piece of rebar and a handful of tools, reports tmz.com.

During the arrest, the man said: "My uncle's Samuel Jackson. Samuel L. Jackson."

It's unclear whether Jackson has any relationship with the person arrested.

"Police were alerted to a suspicious man hanging around the airport with a potential bow and arrow. When police approached, we're told he took off on foot and set off a brief chase... before being tazed and eventually taken down," a law enforcement source told tmz.com.

The man was transported to a hospital by ambulance after having suffered injuries during the arrest.
