Lionel Richie’s son made a scene Saturday at London’s Heathrow Airport, allegedly claiming that he was in possession of a bomb — which he threatened to detonate — and then punching a security guard, a report says.
The incident landed Miles Brockman Richie, 24, in police custody, according to TMZ.
He was given a “caution” for “communicating false information, battery, and causing a bomb hoax” after authorities discovered he was lying about the explosives.
In England, receiving a “caution” means the person involved accepts responsibility for their actions and is allowed to go on their way without being arrested or charged.
Miles — who is Richie’s only son and works as a model — was accused of yelling at airport staff after being denied entry to a flight, TMZ reports.
Witnesses said he told workers about the bomb and claimed he would detonate it if he wasn’t allowed to board. That’s when police stepped in.
According to The Sun, Miles would have likely faced jail time had he been charged with a crime Saturday. A librarian was sentenced to 10 months behinds bars for causing a bomb hoax at Gatwick Airport last year, because he was late for his flight.
