Twitter twit arrested over airport bomb joke

Bookmark and Share

A 26-year-old Twitter user was arrested for a joke comment he made on the social networking site earlier this month.

Paul Chambers posted about his travel plans, and the fact that Doncaster airport was closed due to snow. If it wasn’t sorted out and open before he was due to fly, he said: “I’m blowing the airport sky high!”

A glib comment which he no doubt later regretted when police turned up at his house to arrest him citing the Terrorism Act.

According to a report in The Independent, he was questioned for seven hours about the incident before being released on bail.

And yes, okay, it was a stupid comment – but did it deserve a seven hour grilling down the nick? Hardly.
