    A call came in to the Sheriff's Office at 4:05 p.m., and the restaurant was evacuated, Cpl. Susan Soto said. No further information was immediately available.

    perhaps it was a guest that really didn't want the left overs? or a table of four ordered take out from a restaurant next door?

    The rest of the story:

    Former Planet Hollywood employee arrested for Downtown Disney bomb threat

    A former Planet Hollywood employee was arrested Monday after he threw his backpack on the ground and told restaurant managers that it contained a bomb, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.

    Jason Sean Davis, 21, of St. Cloud came to the restaurant in Downtown Disney West Side about 4 p.m. asking to be rehired, deputies said. Managers refused, so he threw his backpack between the gift shop and a stairwell, the Sheriff's Office said. Investigators evacuated the restaurant, which a manager said had few patrons at that hour, even though Davis tried to take back his allegation.

    The backpack was blown up and found to contain only Davis' belongings. He was arrested on a charge of making a bomb threat and was being held late Monday at the Orange County Jail.

    Planet Hollywood reopened about 7 p.m.

    I don't know why he needed to make a bomb threat... the food causes explosive diarrhea, close enough to a bomb.


    * perhaps a much needed poop joke?
