This story was on AOL today. Pretty much of a bummer for this guy, but it could have been an issue and I am glad the security CM didn’t let it slide:
[U]Disney Tourist Arrested After Joking About Bomb Threats[/U]

A German tourist who made false bomb threats in Walt Disney World on Sunday is now being held on $10,000 bond.
Jochen Naumann, a 37-year-old from Leipzig, Germany, was arrested Sunday morning after telling a Disney cast member that he had two bombs in his backpack while at the security checkpoint near the entrance to the Magic Kingdom. When the employee questioned Naumann, he once again repeated the threat.
The employee immediately called on an Orange County Deputy who was posted nearby, and had a bomb dog check Naumann’s bag. After the dog failed to find any evidence of explosive devices, Naumann was taken to a security office on Disney property, reported Orlando’s Fox News affiliate, WOFL, Sunday.
During questioning Naumann claimed he was only joking about having the bombs and admitted that he knew his statement was inappropriate.
Naumann was arrested on a charge of making a false report of a bomb and then taken to the Orange County Jail.
Naumann’s bond, which was set by a judge early Monday morning, stands at $10,000. His bond is twice the usual amount, due to the fact that he is not a resident of the United States.
