You don’t joke about bombing anything – even on Twitter.

A British man was arrested and held for several hours on Jan. 13 after expressing his frustrations that his flight from Robin Hood Airport in Doncaster, England, to Ireland might be canceled due to snow.

Paul Chambers posted this tweet: “C—! Robin Hood airport is closed. You’ve got a week and a bit to get your s— together, otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high.”

The police were alerted, and the 26-year-old finance supervisor was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to create a bomb hoax.
