A Lauderhill man, accused of making false bomb threats against a Lauderdale Lakes restaurant, is being held in the Broward County Jail, records show.
James S. Green, 35, was arrested Sunday and charged with a dozen counts that included filing false reports of a bomb, misusing 911, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and drug possession, jail records stated.
Green made three calls to 911 to shut down the South Rock Lounge Bar and Grill at 3670 N. St. Rd. 7, and cause the business to lose money, Broward Sheriff's detectives said.
One call was made at 11:17 p.m. Saturday, followed by another at 3:11 a.m. Sunday stating there was a bomb in the business. A third call at 12:40 p.m. Sunday stated there was an armed man in the restaurant, according to the arrest report.
Deputies spotted Green driving away from the restaurant. They stopped him, found marijuana in the car and then arrested him.
He later admitted to making the 911 calls, the report stated.
Bond was set at $25,000 but Green remained in jail for violating the terms of pre-trial release for a Jan. 11 arrest, court records showed.
