Argument at Work Leads to Talk of Terrorism, Criminal Charge
A workplace tiff has turned into something a little bigger in the eyes of La Crosse police. A woman at a La Crosse hospital says some kidding around in the break room took a serious turn when one of the workers threatened to blow her up. He was talking about putting a bomb in her car, sending her up to heaven in little pieces, triggering the bomb to go off when she opened the door; that kind of thing. He apparently also mentioned something about being a terrorist. Internal investigation at the hospital determined it was all just talk. But after the guy cut the woman off while driving, she got police involved. Guy says he was joking about all the terrorism talk. Cops aren't laughing. They've busted the 43 year-old on disorderly conduct charges.
