Fake Bomb Threat Called in on Ex-Boyfriend

A vengeful ex-girlfriend thought she had a clever prank to play on her ex-boyfriend last week. The woman and her current boyfriend allegedly decided to call in a tip to authorities, claiming that her ex-boyfriend, Christopher Shell, was carrying liquid explosives aboard a US Airways flight to Dallas, NY Daily News reports.

The flight diverted to Philadelphia for an emergency landing, where a SWAT team rushed aboard the plane and removed Shell and his carry-on bags from the flight. A bomb squad then searched the plane, which was eventually cleared to continue on.

After questioning, investigators determined that Shell’s ex-girlfriend and her current boyfriend had allegedly phoned in the false threat, and the couple was taken in for questioning. Shell was released and allowed to fly to Dallas, unfortunately, when he landed, he was then arrested again for having outstanding (unrelated) warrants.
