LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The man accused in a bomb scare that shut down the Caloosahatchee Bridge last July was sentenced in court today.
Brandon Deshon was caught walking on the bridge, naked, claiming that his vehicle had a bomb in it. Traffic was diverted for hours, and it turned out to be a false alarm.
According to his arrest report, Deshon told deputies "it was all just a game," and at other times mentioned the alleged bomb "was meant for New York." He said he "was going to make history."
Deshon plead no contest to making a false report of a bomb and will serve 364 days in the Lee County Jail with a credit of 212 days for time already served. That will be followed by 60 months of probation.
Deshon will have drug abuse and mental health evaluations, and will have to serve 300 hours of community service.
Deshon must also pay the Lee County Sheriff's Office back the $3,000 in investigation fees.
