ST. CLOUD -- Another celebrity sighting at the St. Cloud Regional Airport.

He wasn't in town long, but Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson did stop long enough for a quick picture with members of the Waite Park police department.

Waite Park Police Chief Dave Bentrud tells WJON News members of his department met Johnson Sunday night on the tarmac at St. Cloud Regional Airport.  He flew into St. Cloud because of the no-fly zone over Minneapolis during the Super Bowl.  The Rock had an appearance scheduled for NBC's The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon being broadcast out of Minneapolis.

One of our newly hired police officers Jaison Merrick and Dwayne Johnson are cousins.  Their respective mothers are sisters.  We were not part of any kind of security detail or anything.  He only had a few minutes to meet with us.  Small world I guess!!  Very nice guy!!

The Rock has a new movie called "Skyscraper" coming out this summer.

Some of the other notable celebrities that know came through the St. Cloud Regional Airport over the weekend on their way to the Super Bowl included Steph Curry, Demi Lovato, and Darius Rucker.

Here's Dwayne Johnson's appearance on The Tonight Show Sunday night in Minneapolis.
