SALT LAKE CITY -- Police say a 37-year-old man who called in a bomb threat to a Utah Oktoberfest event said he was mad his boyfriend had gone without him and wanted him to return home sooner.
Prosecutors on Thursday charged Daniel Ford Artley with one second-degree felony count of making a false alarm.
If convicted, the West Valley City man faces up to 15 years in prison.
A hearing is set for Tuesday in 3rd District Court.
Court papers say Artley called Snowbird ski resort's reservations line on Oct. 8 and said his "Pakistani colleague" had planted a bomb at an events pavilion because he didn't like Americans. He said the bomb would detonate within 15 minutes.
Hundreds were evacuated from the resort.
Officials used caller ID to track down Artley.
