SULLIVAN, Ind. - A worker at an Indiana McDonald's restaurant has been arrested on accusations he called in a bomb threat.
Multiple law enforcement agencies responded to the McDonald's at 755 West Wolfe Street in Sullivan just before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday after a 911 call reporting a bomb in the building, police said.
Police searched the restaurant, but no explosive devices were found.
Investigators said they later determined that an employee, Tullie R. Evans, 31, had made the false report while on break.
Evans was arrested on a preliminary charge of false reporting. He was being held at the Sullivan County Jail.
A woman who identified herself as Evans' wife but declined to give her name told RTV6 that the incident was the result of a prank call made to his boss, not a threat called in to police.
