TULSA – The man previously arrested for an incident at a restaurant on Cherry Street was taken into custody this week for an alleged bomb threat, reports police.

Nicholas Cardonia was initially arrested on August 11 after Tulsa police say they were forced to deploy pepper balls.

Recently on August 18, Cardonia was arrested after he allegedly climbed on top of a trash dumpster and claimed “I have an electromagnetic bomb and I will blow this --- up.”

Tulsa police say they ordered Cardonia to stop but he did not and attempted to run from officers. Eventually, Tulsa police arrested Cardonia on complaint of making a bomb threat, resisting arrest and assault and battery of a police officer.

On August 11, Cardonia was accused of throwing chairs and assaulting someone inside Kilkenny’s Irish Pub and Grill, says Tulsa police. He then climbed the roof of a nearby building, prompting authorities to surround the area. Tulsa police say they had to deploy the pepper balls when Cardonia started throwing broken pottery fragments.
