Former “Silicon Valley” star T.J. Miller is facing federal charges after allegedly calling in a fake bomb threat from an Amtrak train, officials said April 10th.

On March 18th, Miller alerted 911 in New Jersey that a fellow female passenger was hiding a bomb in her bag on Amtrak Train 2256, which was headed north from Washington.According to CNN,Miller is alleged to have claimed the woman “kept checking her bag without taking anything out,” and “kept asking the first-class attendant what the next stop was, and seemed to want to get off the train and leave her bag behind.”

It was found that Miller gave dispatch the wrong train number and caused a different train to stop for search in Westport, Conn. Miller’s train was eventually searched too and authorities found no explosives.

An investigator then called Miller back, according to the DOJ press release, and he gave a different description of the woman The officer who spoke to Miller said he was slurring his words and when asked if he had consumed any alcohol, investigators said Miller told them he had “one glass of red wine.”

An attendant on the train, who was working in first-class where Miller was, told investigators that Miller “appeared intoxicated upon boarding in Washington,” and that after consuming more drinks, he was removed in New York. The attendant also said Miller was observed to be “involved in hostile exchanges” with the woman he eventually reported.

Federal agents executed an arrest warrant in New York on Monday once Miller returned from Canada, where he had been performing stand-up shows over the weekend.

Miller appeared on Tuesday in a district court in New Haven and was released on $100,000 bond.
