Bomb Threat Gone Stupid


“A man accused of calling in a bomb threat at a courthouse was arrested after being spotted in an elevator in the building.”

Long story short, this guy who was to be sentenced for credit card fraud decided that calling in a bomb threat to the courthouse was a smart way to delay his sentencing. He called in the threat from his house, and then showed up at the courthouse.

Of course, as soon as the threat came in, police traced the call to him and had his description.  As he tried to get off an elevator, he ran right into a Sheriff’s officer who was just handed a printout of his photo and his description.  The inevitable occurred, and he now faces additional charges with calling in the bomb threat.
