Oklahoma City police arrest a man for allegedly calling in a bomb threat at a shopping mall.

Brandon Parks, 36, was arrested after police said he called 911 to make a bomb threat. According to a police report, Parks called 911 on Sunday, January 20 from inside Quail Springs Mall, claiming there was a bomb inside the mall. 911 operators asked him how he knew this and he said "I just do."

Police were able to determine that the call came from a Sprint kiosk inside the mall. Police said another call from that same location came in while officers were en route to the mall. When officers arrived at the kiosk, they saw Parks near the phone. When they approached him, he took off running.

Police caught up with him and arrested him on charges of making a bomb threat, obstructing an officer and resisting arrest.

He was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
