Berea police arrested a woman on several charges after she allegedly reported a false bomb threat at Yamatos Monday afternoon.
Bobby Hasty, 44, Scaffold Cane Road, Berea, called 911 and reported a truck from Amsterdam was loaded with bombs and was going to explode, according to a citation. She then walked over to the McDonald's parking lot, where she was criminally trespassed from earlier Monday.
Hasty was told several times to put out the cigarette she was smoking and put her hands behind her back, the citation states. As police searched Hasty, she became agitated and pulled away from officers. She wouldn't get into the police car, claiming she will not go to jail, and then she started screaming at McDonald's customers in the parking lot to call police.
Officers also determined there was no bomb at Yamatos, the citation states.
Hasty was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where she remained Tuesday afternoon, according to online jail records. She is charged with first-degree criminal trespass, second-degree disorderly conduct, falsely reporting an incident and resisting arrest.
