So, TJ Miller was arrested for allegedly faking a bomb threat

TJ Miller Silicon Valley

Miller has been arrested on federal charges after he made up a story last month about a woman having a bomb on a train, a U.S. Attorney's spokesman said Tuesday.

The Blast first reported that authorities have charged Miller with intentionally conveying false information about an explosive device on a train to law enforcement. And the police reportedly determined that Miller made a false bomb threat over a grudge against this woman, and caused 926 man-hours worth of delays in the process, plus disrupted bomb squads and law enforcement agencies in NY and CT.

T.J. Miller has been arrested and charged with allegedly calling in a false bomb threat last month on an Amtrak train traveling to NY.

The second train was then also stopped, evacuated and also searched; again, no bomb was found. The threat was said to be about Amtrak Train No. 2256, traveling from Washington D.C.to New York's Penn Station. An attendant on the train said Miller consumed multiple drinks on the train, and that he had been removed in NY because of his intoxication. An attendant on the train who was working in the first-class cabin where Mr. Miller was sitting told investigators that Mr. Miller "appeared intoxicated upon boarding in Washington", according to a statement, and that after consuming more drinks after boarding, he was removed in NY. He was released on a $100,000 bond. The maximum sentence for this offense is five years of imprisonment.

"The officer detected slurring in Miller's voice and asked if he had consumed alcohol that day", federal officials said. The complaint alleges that investigators identified and interviewed the female in question, and determined that that she was not carrying any explosives.

A representative for Miller did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

If the attendant's account of what happened is true, perhaps Miller really believed the woman was a threat which prompted him to confront her, thus leading to the alleged hostile exchanges. He was arrested in December 2016 after a driver accused him of battery. Although Miller has denied any wrongdoing, some speculated the accusation might affect his role in Deadpool 2, leading to recasting and reshoots. The woman told The Daily Beast she chose to tell her story because of the #MeToo movement. At the time, Miller and his wife claimed the maintained the accusations were false.
