Former New Jersey Chris Christie was denied his usual VIP entrance at Newark International Airport.

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) was blocked from using the VIP entrance at Newark Liberty International Airport. Christie, who had long grown accustomed, to being treated as a semi-celebrity, was forced to wait with everyone else.

The two-term Republican, who left office on Jan. 16, was blocked from a VIP entrance he had used for eight years, and directed to stand in Transportation Security Administration screening lines at Terminal B like anyone else, according to a person familiar with the incident. The order came from police for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, according to the person, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about security matters.
