5@5: Man Accused of Bomb Scare After Trying to Pay Bar Tab With a Rock

A judge has ordered a psychiatric examination for a man who allegedly tried to pay a bar tab with a rock, and then made a bogus bomb threat.

Cops in Tallahassee, Florida say that on Wednesday, Jared Simpson, 24, visited the 4th Quarter Bar & Grill and rung up a $10 tab. When it came time to pay up, Simpson allegedly tried to get the bartender to accept a rock as payment.

Simpson left the bar and came back a short time later with a credit card that didn’t work, so the employee told him to pay up or leave.

Simpson left again, but came back again, this time in a gray suit and carrying a briefcase that he set down.

After warning that “anyone who goes near this will die,” Simpson allegedly ran out of the bar and across the street.

The bar was evacuated and police were called to the scene.

When Simpson was apprehended, he told police that the briefcase contained “maybe a bomb or a baby,” WCTV.com reports.
