(PHOENIX) — The half-brother of golfer Tiger Woods was arrested Thursday in Phoenix, Ariz. on suspicion of calling in a bomb threat at a government building.

Police in Phoenix say 58-year-old Earl Dennison Woods Jr. called in a bomb threat at the Department of Economic Security near downtown “as a joke” Thursday morning.  They say Woods rang the building’s front desk saying he had a bomb and was going to blow up the building.

Woods later came forward as the caller while police searched for the supposed bomb. He was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on a misdemeanor charge.
