Comedian TJ Miller Arrested For Falsely Alleging Bomb Threat On Amtrak Train

Comedian TJ Miller Arrested For Falsely Alleging Bomb Threat On Amtrak Train

Prosecutors say that last month, Miller called 911 while riding on an Amtrak train from Washington, D.C.to NY, claiming that a female passenger had a bomb in her bag.

Following Miller's alleged 911 call on March 18, the train - travelling from Washington DC to NY - stopped in Westport, Connecticut, where passengers disembarked and a search began.

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. In fact, Miller had actually been removed because of intoxication.

By the time Amtrak investigators received notice of the call and were mobilized to stop and search the train, the train was in CT. The officer then asked him if he suffered from mental illness.

The arrest continues a pattern of troubling behavior by Miller, who starred for four seasons in "Silicon Valley" as bombastic tech mogul Erlich Bachman.

When Amtrak officers interviewed a First Class attendant, however, they were told that Miller appeared intoxicated upon boarding the train and consumed multiple drinks on board.

Miller was allegedly motivated by a grudge against a woman. But he was slurring his speech when he spoke to investigators, per the release, and said he'd had "one glass of red wine" that day.

Miller faces up to five years in prison if convicted. He also said it was the first time he'd ever made a call like this and that he was anxious about everyone on the train.

Investigators inspected Train 2258 when it showed up at Westport, but found no explosive devices on board, according to the release.

"I am anxious for everyone on that train", investigators said Miller told police.

An attendant in Miller's vehicle told investigators that Miller was visibly intoxicated and had been involved in hostile exchanges with the woman in question.

Alex says he saw the woman who was told to stay put, as well as several other women around the same age, being detained and interrogated over to the side.

Miller was arrested Monday evening at LaGuardia Airport. He allegedly claimed that a female passenger had a bomb in her bag and appeared to be checking it anxiously, with an apparent desire to leave the train without it.
