Tiger Woods half-brother is in some hot water today after he was arrested for calling in a false bomb threat to the government building where he works. Earl Dennison Woods Jr., 58, who is also the father of professional golfer Cheyenne Woods, called in the false threat on Thursday morning around 8:30 a.m., according to Fox News Sports on Dec. 13.
Woods works at the Department of Economic Security building in Phoenix, Arizona, where he called in the bomb threat. More than 100 people were evacuated from the building before Woods made his way to the police to tell them that the phone call of a bomb threat was just a joke.
Woods said he was just playing a joke on his co-workers and he never suspected that they would take the threat seriously. Joke or no joke, the police booked Woods on suspicion of attempting to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass others.
Woods, who is apologetic for doing this is cooperating with the police. Apparently it doesn’t matter who your relatives are, calling in a bomb threat is serious business.
