Bomb Threat Investigated

By Patrick Sullivan | March 5, 2019

Traverse City police sent a report seeking charges against an out-of-town man suspected of calling in a bomb threat after he was booted from a bar for being too drunk.

Police were called to the 400 block of South Union Street Saturday evening just before 7pm where bar staff had received a bomb threat via telephone about five minutes after a customer was asked to leave for being too intoxicated, says TCPD Capt. Keith Gillis.

Officers responded, cleared the bar, and used a bomb-sniffing dog to make sure there was no bomb before letting everyone back in. Investigators identified a suspect through the telephone number he left on caller ID. Officers sent a report to prosecutors requesting a warrant on a felony charge of making a bomb threat.
