A man fuming over his rejection from a TV game show was arrested after he showed up at a San Francisco law office wearing a device he said was a bomb, The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday.
The suspect, who was not identified, walked into the offices of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein Monday and told the receptionist he had a bomb, San Francisco Police Sgt. Neville Gittens said.
Witnesses told the Chronicle that the man was angry because he had not been selected to appear on the TV game show "The Price Is Right."
Police were trying to determine whether the device he wore, a white tube with a flashing light, was actually an explosive.
He was arrested after police cordoned off streets and evacuated the law firm's offices in a financial district high-rise.
