Dumb Criminals: After Missing Child's Birth, Utah Man Calls Bomb Threat Into Hospital

No it's not that state!

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man accused of calling in a hospital bomb threat because he was upset he couldn't attend his child's birth is being charged in federal court.

Michael Morlang was indicted Wednesday and faces up to 10 years if convicted, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Utah said in a news release.

The threat led to an evacuation and lockdown on Sept. 17 at a hospital in the small central Utah city of Richfield.

His wife and her father told investigators the day of the incident that Morlang made the bomb threat because he was angry about not being there for the birth, show court documents from state charges filed earlier this year.

The woman's father also told investigators that Morlang was upset because he heard his wife was going to have a procedure to prevent having more pregnancies.

A nurse told police she spoke with Morlang, and that he was "extremely upset that they were going forward with the birth" while he was still in Idaho.
