New Jersey Man Calls In Bomb Threat To Sidestep Court Appearance
For this New Jersey resident, his day in court came too soon. As a means to dodge his mandated court appearance, Jermaine McCain decided to fake a bomb threat at the Mercer County Criminal Courthouse.
On Thursday (Sept. 17), McCain reportedly called 911 and threatened to bomb the establishment. Once apprehended by authorities after the call was traced back to McCain, which was preceded by a high speed chase, he revealed the reason for this gesture was simply because the 36-year-old "had things to do," the police report.
For his actions, McCain is being held on a $50,000 bail at the Bucks County Jail in Doylestown, Penn. and charged with making a false emergency and evading the authorities. It's still unclear why McCain was originally scheduled to appear in court.
