A teenage boy is facing criminal charges after he set off a bomb scare by tweeting some of the lyrics of a Pink song at the US pop songstress's concert on Sunday night at Rod Laver Arena.
The 16-year-old was thrown out of the concert and subsequently arrested by police after he tweeted a reference to Pink's song "Timebomb", off her chart-topping new album, and linked the tweet to the Rod Laver Arena official twitter account.
The tweet read:
@Pink I'm ready with my Bomb. Time to blow up #RodLaverArena. Bitch.
It is understood security at the concert were able to locate the boy in the 12,000-strong crowd by using his Twitter profile photo.
So tweeting the lyrics of a pop song while at the performer's concert can now get you arrested? I guess death metal fans should really watch out.
