Chris Christie was stopped Thursday from using a special VIP entrance at Newark Liberty International Airport that he had used for eight years as New Jersey governor.

Christie and his state trooper security detail were instead directed from the dignitary gate to normal Transportation Security Administration check point lines for general boarding.

The New Jersey Republican complied with the instructions, issued by a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey officer, according to a person familiar with the incident but who was not authorized to comment publicly.

The person told the Washington Examiner that it occurred in Terminal B, not Terminal C as some news outlets reported.

Christie vehemently denied several aspects to circulated version of events.

"Absolutely false story about my travel today. NJSP security detail & I were led to one entrance in the airport by PAPD officer. TSA informed PAPD and NJSP that this was the wrong way to enter and directed us to another entrance where I was screened & admitted to the airport," Christie tweeted, referring to his New Jersey State Police trooper.

"Neither option was the way I entered airport as Governor(wrong in the story) and PAPD officer never denied me entry at either place (also wrong in story). He was a gentleman assisting my security detail. When he got the right info he took me to the right place. Pure fiction," he added.

Christie, a former presidential candidate, vacated his position on Jan. 16 when Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was inaugurated into office.
