Tiger's Half-Brother Arrested for 'Joke' Bomb Threat


Tiger Woods' half-brother, Earl Dennison Woods Jr., has been accused of calling in a bomb threat at the government building where he works in Phoenix, Ariz.

Police say the 58-year-old Woods called in the threat at the Department of Economic Security building about 8:30 a.m. Thursday. They were notified after DES employees alerted the building's security staff.

More than 100 people were evacuated from the building before Woods told police the phone call was meant as a joke and he didn't expect his co-workers to take it seriously.

Police said Woods was booked on suspicion of attempting to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass others. They say Woods is apologetic and cooperating with the investigation.

Woods' daughter, Cheyenne Woods, is a professional golfer on the Ladies European Tour. Woods and his famous half-brother share the same father, Earl Woods Sr.
