ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Police say an Alaska man twice called in bomb threats to a probation office to avoid urine tests.

Anchorage police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker says that 44-year-old Bryant K. Brown was arrested Thursday on two counts of terroristic threatening.

Parker says bomb threats were called into the state Department of Corrections Adult Probation Office on Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 — the same days Brown was scheduled for surprise urine tests.

He says those on probation receive a card with a certain color on it and must call in every day to see if those with that colored card need to be tested.

Brown had been called for testing on both days that bomb threats were called in.

Brown was scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
