Long Island Bomb Scare Blamed On Chihuahua

A dog that wasn’t quite housebroken may have been indirectly responsible for a bomb scare at a Long Island, New York courthouse.

The trouble began Friday when 19-year-old Melvin Ruffin arrived at a court complex in Central Islip, New York following a long bus ride from his home.

During the trip, another passenger’s Chihuahua urinated on his backpack.

Ruffin decided to stash the wet bag in some bushes while he went inside the courthouse to answer a disorderly conduct citation.

But then a retired police officer saw the bag and alerted security.

The bomb squad was ultimately called in. Officers used a robot to determine that the bag didn’t contain anything harmful.

Ruffin says that authorities let him off with a warning to be more careful next time about where he leaves his stuff.
