Vice President Joe Biden was in Southampton Village during the Memorial Day weekend, according to a report.

Southampton Police Chief William Wilson told 27east.com that a no-fly zone was in place for six nautical miles around the home the VP visited, and that Biden was likely in the village for "a social visit."

Air traffic was banned below 3,000 feet around the area from 2 to 4 p.m. on Friday and from 7 to 9:15 p.m. on Sunday, according to the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.

A call to Wilson wasn't immediately returned.
