'Two and a Half Men' Reruns Set Off Bomb Threat
A New York man was arrested for threatening to blow up a local TV station over repeats of the CBS show.
A Bronx resident was arrested Friday for threatening to blow up a local TV station over reruns of the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, the New York Post reported.
Freddy Caldwell called WPIX-11 on May 11 and May 23 with threats to blow up the station's headquarters if it kept airing syndicated reruns of the show.
Police easily traced the calls back to Caldwell's home. According to the Post, he was charged with falsely reporting an incident and aggravated harassment. It is not known at this time what specifically about the reruns prompted Caldwell to threaten the station.
Production on Two and Half Men was halted in February when star Charlie Sheen entered a drug rehabilitation facility. Sheen was subsequently fired in March after making disparaging statements about the show's creator, Chuck Lorre, and CBS network executives during multiple television and radio interviews.
The ninth season of Two and a Half Men is expected to premiere this fall starring That '70s Show's Ashton Kutcher as Sheen's replacement.
