A crap excuse?

A man accused of making a bomb threat has told police it was all a big misunderstanding.

The 30 year old allegedly threatened to blow up a restaurant in New Orleans, but when he was confronted by officers he said he was just referring to a bowel movement.

Local media report the man walked into Willie’s Chicken Shack on Canal Street and asked a staff member what time the restaurant closed.

When she said she didn’t know, he allegedly replied, “Y’all about to close right now because I’m going to get a bomb and blow this place up.”

However, the accused later told police that he wasn’t making any real threats and his words referred to needing the loo.

He claimed he told the employee he was going to “blow the bathroom up” but staff said he never said anything about a bathroom.

He now faces two counts of communicating false information of planned arson.
