Richard is apparently not bored enough at work – apparently he’s “essential” – so he devised a brilliant plan to keep himself home for the day.
Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 36-year-old Richard Hamilton and charged him with making a false bomb threat.
Deputies investigating the call determined Hamilton was the caller and continued their investigation at 1100 Wellington Trace and evacuated about 20 people from the building.
Hamilton told deputies he’d lost his phone, according to the arrest report. After searching the area and Hamilton’s car, deputies say the suspect admitted to them that there was no bomb and that he’d made the call because he was having a bad day and wanted to get out of work.
Let’s ignore the stupidity of this dumbass – it’s really, really easy to track a cellphone bomb threat – and understand how unfair it is that this dick is trying to get out of work while most others are sitting home wondering where their next meal is coming from.
