ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A man who prompted an evacuation of the main terminal at Anchorage's largest airport by making comments about a bomb, which he later said were jokes, has been charged with making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct.
Peter Friesema (FREEZE'-em-uh) was arrested early Sunday by police at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
Airport manager John Parrott says Friesema was jailed at the Anchorage Correctional Complex with bail set at $5,000.
The evacuation happened early Sunday a little after midnight. The terminal was reopened about three hours later after it became clear there was no threat.
