Phoenix, AZ., police said Earl Dennison Woods Jr., 58, called in the threat at his workplace, the Department of Economic Security building sometime Thursday morning.
Police were called in after DES employees alerted building security to the threat.
More than 100 people were evacuated from the building before Woods came forward and told police the phone call was meant as a joke and he didn’t expect his co-workers to take it seriously.
Police said Woods has been booked on suspicion of attempting to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass others. They say Woods is apologetic and cooperating with the investigation. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
Tiger Woods has not commented on the arrest at this time.
