The FBI Just Arrested T.J. Miller For Calling In An Alleged Fake Bomb Threat

On Tuesday, April 10, Comedian T.J. Miller was arrested by federal authorities, who charged him with reporting a fake bomb threat on an Amtrak train heading towards Connecticut.

While traveling, Miller lied about what train he was on and insisted there was a bomb on board.

If convicted, Miller could spend up to 5 years in federal prison.

Unsurprisingly, alcohol may have played a role in Miller's actions.

There may have also been an element of revenge.

Miller has been in the midst of a fall from grace.

Less than a year ago, he was thought of as talented, unique comedic voice. Things began to take a downward turn when Miller left his role on Silicon Valley, starred in The Emoji Movie, and was accused of sexual assault.

Those who have been following Miller's unpredictable career aren't incredibly surprised by this incident.

Miller was taken into custody at New York's Laguardia airport and was released on a $100,000 bond. A trial date has yet to be set.
