Phoenix Police confirmed Friday that a half-brother of legendary golfer Tiger Woods was arrested for making a bomb threat on an Arizona state government building where he is employed.
The incident occurred Thursday morning when Earl Dennison Woods Jr., 58, reportedly made the threat to the Department of Economic Security building from his cell phone, forcing over 100 people top evacuate, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Woods came forward and admitted responsibility almost immediately, and claimed he did it as a prank.
Woods was jailed and released on Thursday without having been formally charged with a crime.
“The department can confirm Mr Woods is a DES employee,” said Tasya Peterson, a spokeswoman for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. “He was involved in an incident that occurred yesterday at one of our offices. The department is reviewing this matter and is unable to release more information at this time.”
