Man Arrested for Threatening to ‘Blow Up the Bathroom’ Says He Meant Taking a Poop, Not a Bomb

There are just some places where you shouldn’t mention explosives. Airports are on that list, as are courthouses. Now there’s another place where you might want to hold your tongue: Willie’s Chicken Shack. That’s where Arthur Posey found himself on the wrong side of the law after he said he was going to “blow up the bathroom.”


A New Orleans man was arrested at a Willie’s Chicken Shack after allegedly claiming he was going to “blow the bathroom up.”

Posey wasn’t making terrorist threats, though. Not exactly. Posey was at the New Orleans chicken restaurant when he was struck with the sudden feeling that he needed to visit the bathroom.

Posey, 30, used a rather colorful metaphor to describe the urgency he felt in the Canal Street restaurant the evening of Nov. 13.

The employees were scared. They didn’t think he was joking. “Y’all about to close right now because I’m going to get a bomb and blow this place up,” they reported to police.


Really... I mean REALLY?!? Cmon fam

I never thought of saying "I'ma blow up the bathroom" as a threat - usually it's afterwards and I'm just stating facts


Another employee said the threat was even more specific. “He [said he] was going to get a bomb and put it under the middle table of the restaurant closest to the front door.”

They called police. The police went after Posey, who had left the restaurant. When they found him, he claimed it was a misunderstanding. He wasn’t threatening to bomb the establishment, not literally.

Posey made bail. That may be a good thing for the NOPD. It would certainly keep him from blowing up their bathroom.
