TJ Miller: US actor charged over fake bomb threat on train

Miller was arrested Monday night at LaGuardia Airport in Queens, New York.

A press release from the U.S. Department of Justice reveals that, on March 18, a 911 dispatcher received a call from Miller, who revealed that he was traveling on Amtrak train 2256 from Washington D.C.to Penn Station in New York City, claiming that a female passenger had a, "bomb in her bag". The train was stopped in Westport, Connecticut, where passengers were taken off the train and bomb squad officers conducted a search. Miller was arrested and charged with "intentionally conveying to law enforcement false information about an explosive device on a train traveling". "The attendant also advised that Miller had been involved in hostile exchanges with a woman who was sitting in a different row from him in the first class vehicle".

The attendant did not back up Miller's account of the woman's suspicious behavior, but instead alleged that the actor had "exchanged profanity" with a woman in the First Class vehicle - adding that Miller had consumed two glasses of wine and two double Scotch and sodas, and that he had been removed in NY due to his intoxication.

The woman told police Miller was being loud and belligerent on the train, and had made a comment about her hair.

Miller was arrested by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents earlier today over a false Amtrak bomb threat he reported back in March.

The New York Post reports Miller was charged with intentionally conveying to law enforcement false information about an explosive device on a train travelling to CT on March 18 incident, according to a federal complaint.

The plane that crashed was reportedly a Piper PA-24 Comanche aircraft which can carry a maximum of six passengers. The NTSB will issue a preliminary report on circumstances of the crash within two weeks, Weiss said.

He appeared before U.S. District Judge Jeffrey A. Meyer in New Haven, Connecticut on Tuesday and was released on a $100,000 bond. He faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

Video obtained by website TMZ shows the Office Christmas Party star being escorted out of the airport by authorities.

"I am anxious for everyone on that train", investigators said Miller told police.

The attendant also said Miller had had hostile exchanges with a woman in the same vehicle.

"In addition to his work on "Silicon Valley", Miller has had roles in "Search Party", Deadpool", and in "Ready Player One".

Miller, who relocated to NY after leaving the series, denied being under the influence while working and attributed falling asleep to late nights doing stand-up comedy. Miller is also dealing with additional fallout after he was accused of multiple offenses by a former college classmate back in December. "I can't believe all that cuz of this guy".
