Florida man arrested for trying to pay bar tab with a rock, and pulling out a briefcase and saying “This briefcase either contains either a bomb or a baby”.
A judge has ordered a psychiatric examination for a Florida man who allegedly tried to pay a bar tab with a rock, and then made a bogus bomb threat.
Cops in Tallahassee, Florida say that on Wednesday, FM, 24, visited the 4th Quarter Bar & Grill and rung up a $10 tab. When it came time to pay up, FM allegedly tried to get the bartender to accept a rock as payment.
When the woman decided that a stone wasn’t legal tender, FM responded by throwing a ripped-up dollar bill at her and saying he “would pay [her] in other ways,” according to the probable cause affidavit.
One witness said FM told people he was “shot up in the war,” but would not reveal the military branch he served in because “if I tell you I have to kill you,” according to Tallahassee.com.
Simpson left the bar and came back a short time later with a credit card that didn’t work, so the employee told him to pay up or leave.
The Florida Man left again, but came back again, this time in a gray suit and carrying a briefcase that he set down.
After warning that “anyone who goes near this will die,” Simpson allegedly ran out of the bar and across the street.
The bar was evacuated and police were called to the scene.
When the Florida Man was apprehended, he told police that the briefcase contained “maybe a bomb or a baby,” WCTV.com reports.
According to police, the Florida Man sang a song about being a “rainbow man,” and refused to answer any questions about the briefcase other that saying, “I am my own master, I answer to myself, no police have the right to ask questions.”
A bomb squad investigator determined the briefcase did not contain a bomb. A vehicle search of FM’s car did not find any other harmful devices.
FM was arrested on charges of bomb threats, a weapon of mass destruction hoax, petit theft and disorderly conduct.
Bond has been set at $30,500, but a judge has ordered that FM undergo a psychiatric exam before he’s allowed to bail out.
Terrez Williams, a cook at the 4th Quarter, said he suspected FM might not be quite right even before the alleged bomb threat.
“He came in here and tried to pay for his drinks with a rock. So I figured something was wrong with him then,” Williams told WCTV.
