T.J. Miller Looking to Avoid a Trial on Those Amtrak Bomb Threat Charges

Remember that incident where T.J. Miller was accused of calling in a fake bomb threat to an Amtrak train back in March? Well it looks like he’s working on a plea deal with prosecutors.

TheBlast.com has obtained court documents filed indicating that Miller and prosecutors are “discussing…the possibility of resolving the case” without going through a formal indictment process. The records reflect that Connecticut DA is seeking an adjournment of Miller’s hearing, set for September 14, to give them time to discuss some sort of an agreement. The new hearing, if approved will be set for November 30th.

The charges filed against Miller- intentionally conveying to law enforcement false information about an explosive device on a train- could carry five years of prison time. Allegedly Miller made a fake call to 911 saying that a woman had a bomb in her bag, resulting in massive travel delays. Miller was kicked off the Amtrak train in New York as a result of the incident, and was released on a $100,000 bond, provide a DNA sample and agree not to travel out of the country pending resolution of the case.
