Man Threatens to Blow Up Local TV Station If He Has to See One More Two and a Half Men Rerun

Freddy Caldwell, a Bronx resident, is fed up with reruns of Two and a Half Men, and he's not going to take it anymore. (The show's been stalled since February, when its star, Charlie Sheen, went on a widely reported bender and got fired, but it lives on in reruns.) So Caldwell did what any sane TV fan would do: He called WPIX-11 HQ and threatened to blow it up if the network continued airing Men reruns. Twice. Cops easily traced the calls to Caldwell's home, and charged him with falsely reporting an incident and aggravated harassment. His punishment will not be having to watch Two and a Half Men reruns forever, but cops probably considered it. That would be hell. [NYP]
