T.J. Miller has been arrested and charged with allegedly calling in a false bomb threat last month on an Amtrak train traveling to NY.

According to the complaint, on March 18 Miller called a 911 dispatcher to report that a female passenger on his Amtrak train had a bomb with her.

At this point, Miller has been released on a $100,000 bond, after appearing before a judge in ct.

His charge "carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years", according to the Justice Department.

The celebrity was charged with intentionally conveying to law-enforcement false info regarding an explosive device on the prepare.

Miller was asked by investigators on the phone if he had consumed any alcohol after officers reportedly detected slurring in his voice to which he replied: "One glass of wine".

During the stop, Amtrak officers interviewed an attendant from the first class auto where Miller had been seated during the trip and said he reported that Miller appeared to be intoxicated when he boarded the train and consumed several alcoholic drinks during the trip, the prosecutor's statement said. This may be the very first moment that I't ever left a call similar to that before.

Former "Silicon Valley" star Todd Joseph "T.J". "I'm anxious for everyone on that train". Miller was arrested Monday night at LaGuardia airport and later released on bail of $100,000.

A 34-year-old woman from Lancing was arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery and possession of a class A drug, police said. An on-duty member of police staff was approached by a boy with a knife, who grabbed her bag, this afternoon (10th April 2018).

Miller has not yet responded to the charge. This resulted in several delays for Amtrak as Miller traveled safely into NY.

The woman kept checking the bag without removing any contents from it. Miller went on to say the woman kept asking an attendant about the next stop and appeared to "want to get off the train and leave her bag behind".

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.

When an investigator phoned Miller in NY, the comedian's description of the woman allegedly changed.

This is not the first time Miller has run into legal trouble. Investigators found the woman, and determined that she did not have a suitcase with a handle or explosives.

If the attendant's account of what happened is true, perhaps Miller really believed the woman was a threat which prompted him to confront her, thus leading to the alleged hostile exchanges.

Meanwhile, the woman told police Miller was being loud and belligerent and had made a comment about her hair, leading to them arguing.
