A man (pictured) has had the crafty idea to phone in a bomb threat as he was running late for the plane.

That’s right, instead of trying to get to the plane as fast as possible, he decided to stop, find the nearest pay phone and call in the threat. Genius!

You should give him credit though, the plane was delayed for two hours, he managed to board the flight and fly to a resort island. Before getting arrested, that is.
