Man arrested for bomb threat at Orlando Eye

Orlando police arrested Elie Ghhorayeb after they say he made a bomb threat to the Orlando eye Wednesday evening.

According to an arrest report, Ghorayeb was angry about the photo booths in front of the attraction.

The report says that he approached the front desk and was extremely agitated.

According to witness statements in the police report he asked the front desk clerk, “What if I said there was a bomb out there?”

When the desk clerk said he would have to call the police, Ghorayeb reportedly said, “Fine, there is a bomb outside, call the police!”

According to the report, several other witnesses say they heard Ghorayeb and felt threatened, especially considering the recent Pulse attack.

Police say there were about 100 people at the Orlando Eye at the time the threat was made.

Ghorayeb was arrested and charged with second degree threat to bomb/false report.
