Man toast after threat to blow up PM made during 000 call

A SUNDAY night snack went so wrong for one Gympie man last weekend that he will now have to face the magistrates court on a charge of improper use of a telephone.

The man allegedly yelled at a 000 operator after burnt toast set off his smoke alarm and he could not turn it off.

Gympie police said the man twice phoned 000 and verbally abused the operator on the other end when she tried to put his call through to the fire station.

He also allegedly threatened to blow up the Prime Minister.

The police eventually sent the firefighters around to sort out his alarm, and the next day visited the man themselves and issued him with a summons to appear in court.
