'Bomb' tweet lands teenage Pink fan in hot water
A teenage boy who attended last night’s Pink concert at Rod Laver arena left with more than he bargained for, after an apparent bomb threat contained in a tweet saw him evicted, arrested and charged.
Speaking with Ross and John, the boy’s father, David King, said the tweet had innocent intentions and was a reference to Pink’s song ‘Timebomb’.
LISTEN: David King speaks with Ross and John:
“When he wrote that, he didn’t have time to put ‘Timebomb’, you know,” he said.
The 16-year-old last night tweeted:
HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think the boy should face charges? Comment below
The teenager's father said he believed security were able to locate within the 12,000-strong crowd by using his Twitter profile picture.
David King said the fact his son was facing criminal charges, including public nuisance, was excessive.
“The policeman said to me, 'if it was up to me, I would have booted him in the backside and said go home',” he told Ross and John.
“But they demanded (he) be arrested.”
You can't tell me this 'kid' did not know what he was doing and am betting if the police had given him a kick up the bum, as his father suggested, dad woud be the first one to scream police brutality.Gloria Wednesday 10 July, 2013 - 11:44 AM
If AC/DC played at Rod Laver TNT would have to be dropped from their set as well as every song from Blow Up Your Video.mylene Wednesday 10 July, 2013 - 9:48 AM
If the little attention seeking
nuisance,threatens 12,000 peoples lives, and has priors for bad behavior. There should be consequences.He obviously is not treating threatening behavior seriously. Oh cancel his Facebook and twitter account as well.

Why would ANY artist worth their salt EVER play this arena again?Clint Tuesday 9 July, 2013 - 5:32 AM
Anything to do with bombs is and has no longer been acceptable for a long time. The word BOMB is no joking matter. If you are going to tweet make sure you think about any consequences before doing so.joe blonski Monday 8 July, 2013 - 8:54 PM
