All tag results for 'bomb threat'
So scary! We're chilled at the number of recent threats!
Aerosmith was forced to cancel a concert in Jakarta, Indonesia on Saturday after two violent activists were arrested for supposedly plotting to blow up the country's Myanmar Embassy!
While it wasn't clear whether or not the band OR concert venue was in danger, the promoter claimed the last minute drop out was due to safety concerns.
Thankfully for all those Crazy fans, Aerosmith has already promised to reschedule the show for later on in their Asia-Pacific tour.
We don't know what the music industry would do without him!

Ugh! This terrifying week just won't seem to end!
This afternoon a man walked into the most improbable place imaginable — a Hooters right in the heart of Hollywood — claiming to be in possession of a bomb!!!
Directly across the street from the infamous
Grauman's TCL Chinese Theater and just a block away from The Kodak Dolby Theater where this years Oscars took place, a man entered the restaurant and started screaming about having a bomb in his lunch box!!
A spokesperson for the LAPD said:
"He indicated he went into the restaurant and said he had a lunch pail, and in there was a bomb. He left that behind and from there, everybody scrambled and called the police."
Yikes!!! Who does that?!
Businesses have since been evacuated and, according to local news tweets, officers are still investigating the situation:
HOOTERS UPDATE: Suspect still in restaurant, LAPD says. Officers are assessing the situation

We sincerely hope everyone pulls through this safely!!
UPDATE: The suspect allegedly told responding police he "was joking," but LAPD's bomb squad continues to sweep the restaurant for any threat.

More potentially frightening news out of Boston!
Moakley Federal Courthouse was just evacuated — no one is 100% sure why, but some sources say there was a bomb threat!!!
CBS Boston reports guards inside shouted "code red" while evacuating all media and nearby civilians!
We don't know what code red means, but it sounds terrifying!!
Obviously, after all of today's misinformation out of CNN, we're apprehensive with any news coming out of Boston that hasn't been verified by the local police or Feds.
Either way, it's clear the courthouse in Boston was evacuated for one reason or another!
Law enforcement officials continue to investigate, but, at the moment, it doesn't look like the public is returning to the courthouse.

We have no word on whether or not these two incidents are linked or just pure coincidence, but both the University of Texas at Austin and North Dakota State University were evacuated this morning after receiving a bomb threat.
UT got a call around 8:35 a.m. from a man with a Middle Eastern accent claiming to be a rep from al-Qaeda and threatened that bombs on campus would explode in 90 minutes!
Campus officials took immediate action through every medium possible to make sure the students and staff were safe. A Twitter message read:
Oh no! We hope everyone's okay!
Police are investigating a suspicious package that was found in the metrolink subway station on the very popular and touristy intersection of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland in El Lay on Tuesday.
