Nebraska man jailed for bomb threat on job application

KEARNEY, Neb. - A central Nebraska man landed in jail for writing a bomb threat on the back of a restaurant job application.

The Kearney Hub reports that the Legacy 272 Lounge employee who reviewed 38-year-old Jason Dornhoff's application last Thursday called police when he read the threat that closed with: "If you be quiet and help me, you won't die."

Police arrested Dornhoff, of Heartwell, Neb., at gunpoint and searched his truck, but didn't find any bomb.

Court documents say Dornhoff told police he uses methamphetamines and went to the restaurant hoping to find a way to fulfill his sexual fantasies.

A public defender who was appointed to represent Dornhoff didn't immediately respond to a message Wednesday.

Dornhoff has posted $10,000 bond and is due back in court on Aug. 13.
