Prosecutors in Utah charged a FedEx Corp. driver with a threat of terrorism count over allegations he joked that a package he was delivering to a Utah Army base was likely a bomb.
Charges filed this week in Salt Lake City show the deliveryman was dropping off a package on Sept. 20 addressed to an Army Corps of Engineers employee at Camp Williams.
Prosecutors say that when a woman asked him what it was, he replied that it was probably a bomb. Military police then evacuated 215 people from the building and the surrounding area.
The Deseret News identified the driver as 27-year-old Kevin Coleman.
Police say the man later told them his comment was a mistake.
He's charged with a third-degree felony count of threat of terrorism.
