If you’ve ever wondered when, where and if the freedom to make off-hand comments crosses the border of felony conviction, look no further:
The man, who has not been identified, is in custody after causing a roughly five-hour lockdown of the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, west of downtown Phoenix, said Sgt. Jesse Spurgin, a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office spokesman.
"Our bomb squad has just cleared the vehicle and no explosives were found," Spurgin told Reuters. "There was no danger to the plant. Everything is fine."
Spurgin told Reuters the man faces possible felony charges.
Authorities said that the man was undergoing a routine inspection at about 12:45 local time and made an "off-handed remark" that he had a bomb in his car.
So, apparently there is some truth to Meet the Parents.
