Man pleads guilty in Amtrak bomb scare

(The following appeared on the Great Falls Tribune website on April 27, 2011.)

GREAT FALLS, Mont. — A Minneapolis man pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges stemming from a February bomb scare on a westbound Amtrak train that caused the entire train to be evacuated in severe winter conditions west of Browning.

Hussein Abdi Hassan, 24, pleaded guilty to false information/hoaxes. Sentencing has been set for Aug. 22.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, after Hassan was arrested and escorted off the train for disorderly conduct on Feb. 14, he told a Glacier County Sheriff's deputy that he had left "something very dangerous" on the train. The train's conductor had called ahead to the sheriff's office and requested that Hassan be taken off at the Browning train depot because he was intoxicated and extremely disruptive.

The full story is on the Great Falls Tribune website.
