Hotel employee threatens Jews


(JTA) — An employee at a Florida hotel called in a threat against Jews so he could get a day off from work.

Thomas Hudnall called police early Monday morning and said, "There is a bomb at the Biltmore Hotel, and death to all Jews," according to reports. Hudnall worked as a custodian at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables.

Police traced the call to the hotel. When confronted, Hudnall admitted to making the call.

Hudnall did not intend to harm Jews, police said. He was arrested and charged with making a false report of explosive/weapons of mass destruction.
