Florida woman Priscilla Lee Bembow was looking to get a ride or something, so she called “the government” to report a fake bomb threat.
Bembow called a U.S. Navy recruiting station from a gas station Monday at 8:45 a.m., asked if she’d contacted the government, gave a fake name (Patricia Lee) and warned that a bomb was going to detonate in an undisclosed location unless she was picked up.
The man who took Bembow’s call, First Class Petty Officer Charles Brockett, notified the police immediately after consulting his superiors. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office sent deputies to the Raceway gas station in Pensacola, Florida and gave Bembow the ride she requested, the Pensacola News Journal reported.
She went to jail, directly to jail, did not pass “Go” and did not collect $200.
Surprise! A quick search revealed that there was no bomb.
Bembow has been charged with a felony for the bomb threat.
It’s not clear if the bomb threat was due to her being under the influence, insane or lazy.
