Nvidia exec arrested after 'bomb threat'

  • An Nvidia marketing director was hauled off a plane and chucked in jail last week after allegedly joking that he had a bomb.

    Yushing Lui, 47, was settling into his seat before the Cathay Pacific Airways flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong when a flight attendant offered to take his jacket, says the Mercury News.

    He was a regular visitor to the US, and speaks fluent English.

    According to prosecutors, when she asked whether there was anything important in the pockets, he said he had a bomb.

    He says he told her there was a million dollars inside.

    The flight attendant called airport police who, astonishingly, did not find a bomb.

    Lui was freed on $10,000 bail after Judge Beth Freeman decided it was just too risky to let him loose without. His trial is scheduled for March 8.
