Father of two William H. Klein wanted to take his daughters to see the Guy with the Hair and the rest of One Direction at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania, last year. But tickets were sold out. When he informed his daughters of this fortunate for him, unfortunate for them situation, one of them threatened to never speak to him again. So naturally, he then did what any good dad would: phone in a bomb threat.

“If One Direction plays tomorrow, the stadium will blow up,” was the threat phoned in on July 5, 2013 to Hershey Entertainment and Resorts. One Direction was on a tour of the United States last summer. The threat set in motion a number of security measures. The stadium was placed on lockdown before the concert, police conducted a bomb sweep and security personnel searched every bag entering the stadium, prosecutors said.

Investigators traced the call to a pay phone outside a 7-Eleven store in Northfield, N.J. Surveillance video revealed the caller to be William H. Klein, 47. Klein pleaded guilty today to a charge of interstate communication with threat to injure. (Via)

These dads only wish they had thought of making a phony bomb threat.
