Deadpool Star TJ Miller Arrested for Calling in a Fake Bomb Threat

Wednesday, 11 Apr, 2018

He faced a judge at U.S. District Court in New Haven on Tuesday.

The complaint also alleges that Miller was motivated by a grudge against this woman to call in the alleged bomb threat and that he continued to provide false information to investigators while their public safety response was ongoing. Supposedly, these charges stem from a March 18 incident when T.J. was riding an Amtrak train from Washington New York City.

Miller reported his location as Amtrak Train 2256, which was subsequently stopped at Green's Farms Station in Westport, Connecticut, and evacuated while the police bomb squad searched it. Later on, it was discovered that Miller was on a different train, which was also inspected and "found not to contain any explosive devices or materials". The investigator noticed Miller was slurring his words and asked him if he had consumed alcohol, and the actor claimed that he had had "one glass of red wine".

The ex-Silicon Valley star was detained at LaGuardia airport in NY, in relation to a 911 call he made on March 18. "I'm anxious for everyone on that train". "Someone had to check that lady out". Miller was arrested this morning by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at a New York City airport.

If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.

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

"In addition to his work on "Silicon Valley", Miller has had roles in "Search Party", Deadpool", and in "Ready Player One". He was released from custody on Tuesday morning after posting $100,000 bond. 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.

Prosecutors claim Miller and a woman got into a screaming match aboard an Amtrak train last month.

The woman told police Miller was being loud and belligerent on the train, and had made a comment about her hair. T.J., in the docs obtained by TMZ, supposedly caused 926 hours worth of delays, as well as disrupting several law enforcement agencies and bomb squads in NY and CT.

The case is being investigated by the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force, as well as local and Amtrack police.

Though a fan favorite on "Silicon Valley", the actor was written off the show last season and vowed in an interview with Vanity Fair that he would "never" return. He was arrested in Los Angeles in December 2016 after a confrontation with a driver. Miller is facing 5 years behind bars if found guilty of the federal charges against him.
