A bungled wedding day
A panic-stricken British groom called in a bomb scare to a wedding hall where he was supposed to be married that day, after realizing he’d forgotten to reserve it. Neil McArdle, 36, didn’t want his fiancée to realize he had bungled the booking of the wedding, so he phoned the hall on the morning of their big day, telling a receptionist that “a bomb will go off in 45 minutes.” His fiancée arrived at the hall in her wedding dress to find it swarming with bomb squad cops. McArdle now faces a jail sentence. “It may be funny to other people,” he said, “but not to me.”
