'Bomb threat' turns out to be man warning of 'blowing up' bathroom at Home Depot

WICHITA, Kan. – Try explaining this one to the police... 

A reported bomb threat turned out to be a man warning of a coming bowel movement, according to a report by KWCH

The Sedgwick County Communications told KWCH that a 911 call stated that someone may have a bomb at the Home Depot in Kansas. 

Police went out to the Home Depot to investigate. That's when a shopper there told staff members they overheard the threat in the store's restroom.

Officers found the "bomb threat" came from a man in a stall warning others about his bowel movement. 

"You all need to get out of here because I'm fixin' to blow it up."

Police said it was a misunderstanding... and we're sure everyone had a good laugh.
