Police cordoned off the area and told residents to remain indoors while military units checks for explosives, a spokeswoman for the prosecutors said.
"The man was driving suspiciously and failed to stop at a traffic light," spokeswoman Ine van Wymersch told Reuters.
"When the police arrested him, he claimed to have explosives so not to take any risk, the army has been called in to check."
