Driver says he was only joking about a bomb on state ferry
February 18, 2021
JUNEAU (AP) - A man in a pickup truck was arrested after the Alaska Transportation Department said he drove past boarding lines to get onto a state-run ferry at the dock in Juneau on Feb. 10 and was heard by crew “muttering about a bomb and firearms.”
The Juneau Police Department said the man did not have a ticket to board the LeConte’s morning voyage and “made a comment about a bomb” when confronted by ferry employees. The police department, in a release, said the comment was not a direct threat and the man did not say he had a bomb. But it said the comment created concern.
