Obama bomb threat accused says it was just a joke
THE 21-year-old man who was arrested for allegedly threatening President Barack Obama during the G20 appeared briefly in court yesterday.
Jacob Nicholas was charged with using a carrier service to menace or harass after he allegedly made a joke threatening to bomb the president of the United States.
Outside court, Nicholas's solicitor Doug Winning told TV reporters the comments made on social media were meant as a joke.
His case was adjourned until December 18.
