Gladewater rollover leads to bomb scare

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - 1:10pm

One person is in Gregg County custody after unintentionally causing a bomb scare Tuesday night.

According to the Gladewater Police Department, Joshua Hadley was involved in a rollover wreck on Shell Camp Road just after 7:00 p.m. in city limits. He left the scene and was arrested at his house shortly after the crash.

Police say they found a black pipe in Hadley's vehicle that resembled a bomb. This prompted authorities to block off roads around the accident until a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unit from Tyler inspected the device.

After the pipe was deemed non-explosive, the scene was cleared.

Hadley is currently in the Gregg County Jail on charges of fleeing the scene of an accident and resisting arrest.
