Tiger Woods' half brother, Earl Dennison Woods Jr., was arrested on Thursday on a charge of "allegedly making a false bomb threat" at his place of employment -- a government building in Arizona.

One hundred people were evacuated, according to an AP report, and Woods even admitted to making the phone call afterward but said he meant it as a joke.

Sorry, Cheyenne's dad and Tiger's half brother, you can't joke about stuff like that.

Also, I'm sure Tiger is excited about you wearing that Nike polo to take your mugshot.
