The son of music legend Lionel Richie has been arrested after allegedly making bomb threats.

According to Fox News:

Lionel Richie’s only son was reportedly involved in a serious incident at a U.K. airport that allegedly ended in a fake bomb threat and a punch thrown at airport security.

According to TMZ, Richie’s 24-year-old son, Miles Brockman Richie, was allegedly attempting to get on a flight but was denied boarding to the plane for an unknown reason. He reportedly became angry and allegedly claimed he had a bomb on his person and threatened to detonate it if he wasn’t let on the aircraft. When security inevitably showed up, the outlet reports that Miles punched one of the guards.

From there, police reportedly detained him and issued him a caution on the scene. Miles reportedly accepted the caution from police and was released without further incident.

Representatives for Lionel Richie did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the matter.

It is also reported that Richie's son has accepted responsibility for the incident but will not have to appear in court for the incident.
