'Deadpool' star charged in fake bomb threat

T.J. Miller

He was arrested Monday night at La Guardia Airport, and appeared in court in New Haven Tuesday morning.

The comedian and former "Silicon Valley" actor TJ Miller has been arrested on suspicion of calling in a fake bomb threat to authorities from an Amtrak train.

Miller was taken into custody over a call he made on March 18 to 911 where he reported a fellow passenger on an Amtrak train from Washington D.C.to New York City for allegedly having "a bomb in her bag".

Amtrak authorities ceased the train as it made to Connecticuttrain travellers to get off and bomb squad officials searched the prepare but discovered nothing whatsoever. No explosive materials were found. Miller said he had "one glass of red wine.' When officials asked if he suffered from mental illness, they said Miller replied "no, absolutely not". He insisted he was "worried for everyone on that train". "Someone had to check that lady out". The attendant also stated that Miller had been involved in a number of hostile exchanges with a woman seated in a different row from him in the first class vehicle.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Attorney's Office in CT announced charges against Todd J. Miller, best known for his previous role as pothead Erlich Bachman on HBO's "Silicon Valley". The charge carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years. TMZ reported that Miller and the driver got into an argument about President-elect Donald Trump, and Miller allegedly slapped the driver in the head when they arrived at Miller's home.

This alleged woman "has a bomb in her bag", T.J. reportedly said.

"In addition to his work on "Silicon Valley", Miller has had roles in "Search Party", Deadpool" and "Ready Player One".

When an investigator phoned Miller in NY, the comedian's description of the woman allegedly changed. By the time Amtrak investigators received notice of the call and were mobilized to stop and search the train, the train was in CT.

TV Guide has reached out to Miller's attorney for comment.

Upon further investigation into the Amtrak bomb allegations of ex-Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller, federal investigators spoke to the Amtrak attendant that was in the first class vehicle where Miller was seated during the trip in question. Meanwhile, Miller was on his train to NY.

Miller also apparently had hostile interactions with a woman on the train, according to the same attendant, but authorities confirmed the woman did not have the same type of bag Miller described over the phone.

Miller has not yet responded to the charge.

In December, Miller was accused of sexual assault by a woman who knew him in college. Miller and his wife have denied the allegations.
