Band sticker causes bomb scare at Ohio University
Friday, March 3, 2006
The university police, who were unaware of the band's existence, summoned the Columbus police bomb squad, who destroyed the bike to ensure that there was no bomb inside. The university later discovered their error.
The bike's owner, a graduate student, has been charged with "inducing panic," a misdemeanor. He has been released and is due to appear in court March 13 on the charge.
The band's label, Plan-It-X Records, has not yet commented on the incident. The font and style of the sticker are common among such humorous stickers.
