T.J. Miller best known for his role on the television show “Silicon Valley” was arrested last night. He was taken into custody for calling in a fake bomb threat on March 18, 2018 according to a press release from the United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut.
Authorities say he allegedly called 911 saying he was on an Amtrak Train and that a female passenger “has a bomb in her bag.”
The train Miller identified was stopped in Connecticut and heavily searched. It was later discovered that Miller was on a different train.
The attendant on Miller’s actual train indicated that T.J. “appeared intoxicated upon boarding in Washington, that he consumed multiple drinks on the train, and that he had been removed in New York owing to his intoxication.” Miller had been harassing a woman, “who was sitting in a different row from him in the first-class car,” according to the release. The same attendant verified those claims to news outlets. Authorities believe he made this call in response to a woman turning his attention down and his “grudge” towards her. Miller could face five years in prison if found guilty.
