BuddyTV has learned of a scary and bizarre story out of Nashville. It has been reported that a 16-year-old boy was arrested last night for trying to crash into a Hannah Montana
concert. This is not your typical crashing of an event, not a situation where someone couldn't get a ticket and tried to sneak in. This disturbed teen supposedly planned to hijack a plane and literally crash it into a Hannah Montana
concert, taking place in Lafayette, Louisiana at the Lafayette Cajundome. The boy flew on Southwest Airlines from Los Angeles to Nashville, where he was quickly arrested without incident. "His stated intent was to hijack the airplane and commit suicide," said George Bolds, an FBI spokesman. "He did indicate he intended to die in Louisiana. It appears he had a ticket to Louisiana."
The FBI has not released the identity of the boy, who carried handcuffs, rope, and duct tape in his bag. "His plan contemplated overpowering the flight crew," Bolds said. He was traveling alone at the time of his arrest and his parents reported him as missing at 11:30am yesterday morning. Currently, the teen is being held at Davidson County Juvenile Detention Center in Nashville. He never actually attempted to hijack the plane, as he was arrested in the Nashville airport before boarding.
The FBI has dismissed several reports from news outlets such as NBC and CNN that the boy had any serious intent of crashing the plane into the concert venue. However, they could be downplaying it to avoid working people up into a panic. A few hours ago, every major news outlet reported that the boy had every intention of crashing into the Lafayette Cajundome. However, local Tennessee news affiliates, WSMV and WTVF, have pulled the stories and CNN has printed a retraction. It appears that Miley Cyrus
is safe and sound and can continue on her nationwide tour without worry.
