There was a bomb threat before last night’s Angels-Tigers game

Mad Bomber

Earlier this week there was a bomb threat against the Ambassador Bridge, which connects Detroit with the famous South Detroit mentioned in the song “Don’t Stop Believin'” (i.e. Windsor, Ontario). That was a hoax.  Then this last night:

Detroit Police are confirming to 7 Action News that a bomb threat was made against Comerica Park on Tuesday night. According to police spokesperson Sergeant Eren Stephens the threat was called into 911 at 8:00 p.m.

This one was not a hoax. The bomb turned out to be Jacob Turner (2 IP, 6 H, 7 ER).

No actual explosives were found either.

    Nothing Frank Drebin couldn’t handle. Though I heard Nordberg couldn’t make it.

    There was also a bomb threat a few days earlier at the Detroit-Windsor tunnel. Odd.

    Nobody in Detroit can afford to make a bomb.

    Got to look first at any nearby Occupy groups. They are famous for that kind of thing.

    Anyone who watched the game knows there was no threat. There were bombs going off left and right. And the center!

    Man, it’s getting hostile in here. By the way Craig, got me good at the end. “This one was not a hoax” made me go “OH SH!T!!” Then I kept reading… “The bomb turned out to be Jacob Turner (2 IP, 6 H, 7 ER).”

    Annnd I laughed. Hard. Poor guy…

    Kudos, chief. 😉
