Baltimore man charged for TV Station bomb threat

Baltimore man charged for TV Station bomb threat

Charges of arson and other counts were laid against a Maryland man accused of threatening Fox Television´s Baltimore affiliate with a fake bomb vest last Thursday. April 28. The bomb vest was actually loaded not with explosives but with chocolate bars in foil wraps. Alex Brizzi, age 25, was wearing a hedgehog suit while threatening the TV station. 

Police officers did take the fake threat seriously and put Brizzi on a safe place. He was shot by a police officer while he was trying to deliver a flash drive with a video about what he claimed was evidence of government conspiracy.  Brizzi wanted to forcefully get some air time from the TV station.

After taking him down and making serious investigations about it, Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said that there is no connection with terrorist groups at all.  The possibility of a mental disorder is contemplated as having a major role in Alex’s behavior. Edward Brizzi, the suspect’s father said his son had lost his job and his girlfriend and that probably all this was a result of a mental breakdown.

It all began around 1:20 pm, when a man dressed in a military-type jacket handed the guard in the vestibule of the FOX45 building a flash drive and told him he had a bomb. When the security contractor noticed what appeared to be an explosive, the building was evacuated. 

Commissioner Davis said, “Brizzi said he wanted to air the contents of that flash drive on television.  What we know at this point is that the flash drive contained video rants of Brizzi talking about the end of the world.”

At around 3 pm, after SWAT officers had arrived at the site, the suspect came out of the lobby. Officers ordered him to get down but he kept walking.  After several shots, the police finally managed to put him down.  He is presently at the hospital in serious condition but stable.

When Commissioner Davis was giving a statement he added that, even though the bomb was fake, "the fear of what he had shut down an entire community and scared a whole lot of people."
