Tries to get out of court hearing

A Virginia man who was due to appear in a U.S. court was arrested after he called in a fake Saudi bomb threat in an attempt to postpone his hearing, a press report said on Monday.

Richard Phillip Mathews, 37, sent a letter to the Worcester County Circuit Court in Maryland on July 1 claiming that a “Saudi Arabian elite special forces unit” was going to drive a truck full of C-4 explosives into the building the next day – the day of his trial – local TV channel WBOC TV 16 reported.

The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation (WCBI) arrested the 37-year-old suspect, who was due to appear in court on July 2 on unrelated charges. He was charged with false statement of a destructive device and an arson threat.

Police said Mathews had made several attempts to postpone his trial and had been arrested in 2002 for calling in a fake bomb threat to postpone his trial at Wicomico County Courthouse, also in Maryland.

Mathews was arrested and convicted for the 2002 incident as well.
