BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Baton Rouge Police Department has arrested a man accused of threatening another man with a fake explosive device.

Police tell local media that a man registered a complaint Monday that 35-year-old Dean Hebert had left him a voicemail saying, “Hey Bob, it’s a good day to die.” Authorities say Hebert later visited the man’s business when he was gone and left a card with his contact information.

Authorities say Hebert posted a video of himself claiming to have an explosive device. Police later determined that the device in the video was fake.

Hebert has been charged with having a fake explosive device, among other charges.

Neighbors say someone set off small explosions near the man’s apartment. Police say they haven’t charged anyone in connection with the explosions due to lack of evidence.
