Wrist slap for alleged pipe bomb prankster
A carpenter at Tufts-New England Medical Center who allegedly planted a phony pipe bomb as a prank against a coworker - forcing a frantic evacuation as cops responded to unrelated hoax devices throughout the city - was slapped with a two-week job suspension but faces no criminal charges, the Herald has learned.
“We consulted with the District Attorney’s office and it was decided there was no probable cause to charge the individual criminally,” Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said yesterday. “Believe me, it’s frustrating. If there was a way we could charge this guy, we would do it.
“This was made up to look like a pipe bomb. This is nothing to be fooling around with.”
