Tiger Woods’ half-brother, Earl Dennison Woods Jr., was arrested Thursday in Phoenix.
He is accused of making a false bomb threat at the government building where he works.
According to Phoenix police, Earl Dennison Woods Jr., 58, called in the threat at the Department of Economic Security (DES) building about 8:30 a.m. MT Thursday.
Police say they were called after DES employees alerted building security.
More than 100 people were evacuated from the building before Earl Dennison Woods came forward and told police the phone call was meant as a joke and he didn’t expect his co-workers to take it seriously.
Police said Earl Dennison Woods Jr. has been booked on suspicion of attempting to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass others.
He was apologetic and cooperating with the investigation.
Earl Dennison Woods’ daughter, Cheyenne Woods, is a professional golfer.
