Back in 2016, actor and comedian T.J. Miller was arrested for attacking an Uber driver during an argument about Trump. Now he has been arrested for making a false claim about a bomb on an Amtrak train. He had apparently been drinking.
The New York Post reports:
T.J. Miller busted for ‘drunk’ bomb threat on Amtrak train
Ex-“Silicon Valley” star TJ Miller caused hours of Amtrak delays when he drunkenly called in a fake bomb threat after a female passenger snubbed his advances, federal authorities said as they announced his arrest Tuesday.
Miller was nabbed Monday night at LaGuardia Airport in connection to the March 18 incident after arriving on a flight from Canada – where he performed a comedy show from Thursday through Sunday, law enforcement sources said.
The 36-year-old comedian and actor was charged with intentionally conveying to law enforcement false information about an explosive device on a train traveling to Connecticut and faces a maximum five years in jail, the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Connecticut announced.
After briefly appearing before a judge at a New Haven federal courthouse Tuesday morning, Miller — a Denver native living in New York – was released after posting a $100,000 bond.
The real-life drama played out when Miller allegedly called a 911 dispatcher in New Jersey and said he was on an Amtrak train traveling from Washington DC toward Penn Station and that a female passenger “has a bomb in her bag,” according to the complaint.
It looks like this guy has some serious issues. Maybe his friends and family can help him get the help he needs.
