Police said a Charleston man was arrested Friday afternoon after he allegedly said he had a bomb under his foot when he was talking to a FedEx driver.
John Workman, 41, was arrested following an incident at Kanawha Village Apartments. Police said a neighbor heard the suspect make the comment and called the apartment manager who found Workman in the stairway. Workman then allegedly told the manager not to open the door because the bomb would go off, police said.
The manager called 911, and Workman was arrested. A canine dog searched the building but nothing was found.
