Not #Winning: Bomb Threat Over 2½ Men Reruns

I’m as sick of Charlie Sheen as anyone, but a New York City resident named Freddy Caldwell is maybe a little more annoyed than the rest of us. On May 11 and May 23, after WPIX-11 aired reruns of “Two and a Half Men,” Caldwell called in bomb threats to the station, demanding that they not run any more of the syndicated sitcom episodes.

Much of the caller’s motive remains unknown. Did he dislike seeing the show in general, or just headline-making Sheen? Were substances, such as alcohol (or tiger blood?), behind the threats?

Police (winning!) traced the calls to the man’s home in the Bronx, and Caldwell was charged with “falsely reporting an incident and aggravated harassment.”
