T.J. Miller, formerly of Silicon Valley and, uh, The Emoji Movie, has been arrested for calling in a fake bomb threat on a train that he was not on back in March. TMZ has the details:
According to the FBI docs, Miller called 911 on March 18 while he was riding an Amtrak train from D.C. to NYC … and reported a woman with brown hair and a scarf “has a bomb in her bag.” An Amtrak police officer called back Miller who added … the woman kept checking the bag and seemed to want to get off the train and leave it behind.
The officer asked Miller if he suffered from mental illness … which he denied, and said, “This is the first time I’ve ever made a call like this before. I am worried for everyone on that train. Someone has to check that lady out.”
As it turns out … Miller gave cops the wrong train number, and as a result a train to Connecticut was stopped, evacuated and searched … causing massive Amtrak delays. Meanwhile, Miller was on his train to NY.
TMZ adds that Miller was also intoxicated (he had two glasses of wine and two double scotches on the train), that he was being loud and belligerent with the woman with whom he exchanged profanities, and it appears that Miller called in the fake bomb threat over a “grudge” that he had with the woman.
The disruption caused over 936 man-hours in delays to authorities and Amtrak personnel.
Miller will next be seen in Deadpool 2, in what increasingly appears to be the last major film of his career.
