Police cleared a gathered crowd near Monument Circle for about 20 minutes after a man made a bomb threat.

Just before 5 p.m., a man made a threat that he had a bomb or an explosive device as people were standing in line waiting for a spot in the concert area downtown. But it all turned out to be a hoax. Apparently, the guy just wanted to get further ahead in the line to get a better spot. So he told those around him in line he had a bomb in his backpack. Police said,  “Someone did the right thing and alerted IMPD. The backpack was clean.”

We’re gonna slap a #SettingTheBar sticker on this and say let’s not do this to try to get a better spot at the show. Let’s just get there earlier mmmkay?
