A former HBO star is facing up to five years in prison after allegedly calling in a fake bomb threat while on an Amtrak train heading to Connecticut back in March.
T.J. Miller, previously on the network’s “Silicon Valley,” reportedly called 911 while on the train to report that a fellow passenger “has a bomb in her bag.”. Miller appeared to be intoxicated, according to details obtained by The Blast.
The train attendant “appeared intoxicated upon boarding in Washington, that he consumed multiple drinks on the train, and that he had been removed in New York owing to his intoxication. The attendant also advised that Miller had been involved in hostile exchanges with a woman who was sitting in a different row from him in the first class car.”

It’s not Miller’s first time grabbing headlines for run-ins with the law. In 2016, he was arrested for suspicion of battery in Los Angeles after allegedly arguing with an Uber driver over Donald Trump following a GQ event.
Miller was accused of assaulting the driver after an argument over then President-elect Trump. It was a citizen’s arrest, as it did not happen in front of officers. Miller allegedly slapped the driver in the head, TMZ reported.
The driver, Wilson Deon Thomas III, later filed a lawsuit against the actor accusing him of causing injuries like whiplash. In response, Miller accused Thomas of trying to extort him.
