Teen Arrested for Tweeting About Bomb at Pink Concert in Australia

Facebook.com/PinkAn Australian teenager was arrested at the site of Pink’s concert in Melbourne on Sunday night after posting a tweet in which he stated he was “ready” with a “bomb.”

According to Australia’s Herald Sun, the 16-year-old wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted, "@Pink I'm ready with my Bomb. Time to blow up #RodLaverArena. B****."

Security at the venue reportedly identified the boy -– who is not named in the report -- by relying on his Twitter profile picture.

Speaking with the Herald Sun, the boy’s sister insists he was simply referring to the song “Timebomb,” a bonus track from Pink’s most recent album, The Truth About Love.

The boy is facing charges including public nuisance.

Pink is currently in the midst of a 46-date tour in the Land Down Under.
