Tiger Woods' Half-Brother Arrested for "Joke" Bomb Threat on Government Building

Friday December 13th, 2013


The AP is reporting that Tiger Woods' 58-year-old half-brother, Earl Dennison Woods Jr., called in a bomb threat Thursday morning to his place of employ, the Department of Economic Security in Phoenix. Apparently, it was in pursuit of some yuks:

More than 100 people were evacuated from the building before Woods came forward and told police the phone call was meant as a joke and he didn't expect his co-workers to take it seriously.

In early 2012, ESPN's Rick Reilly wrote about the seemingly frosty relationship between Earl Jr. and Tiger. One imagines this isn't going to help warm things up.
