Police responded to a Home Depot in Wichita, Kansas recently following a 911 call from a customer. It all turned out to be a hilarious misunderstanding. According to KWCH, the police were called to a Home Depot after a potential bomb threat was heard being uttered in the bathroom — some of you already see where this is going.
“We just had a customer here made what may have been a bomb threat,” the caller told police, according to the report. “He said, uh, somebody told me there’s a bomb in here and you need to leave the building. He said it three times.”
The customer who overheard the “bomb threat” eventually informed the Home Depot staff so they could inform the proper authorities.
As it turns out, the man was just preparing to take a huge dump and was trying to be kind enough to warn his fellow bathroomgoers that it may be in their best interest to avoid the stinky situation.
A second witness told police the man’s “threat” was actually him saying, “You call need to get out of here because I’m fixin’ to blow it up.” The second witness, understandably so, laughed at the so-called threat and went about his merry way while the other customer took care of business.
Eventually, once police showed up, they determined the man in the bathroom stall was not actually a threat.
KWCH obtained audio of the hilarious 911 call which you can listen to here.. And as you might expect, the television broadcast of the news report is just as entertaining as the Onion-esque story itself, with the news reporter bursting out into laughter.
We know this is a “bomb threat” that the police officers will never forget. And the man in question will forever have an incredible story to share with his friends.
