SALT LAKE CITY — A man upset about not getting tested for the coronavirus threatened to bring a bomb to a Utah hospital March 18, according to a probable cause statement.
Brian James Gosh made the threat after he called the hospital and was told he couldn’t get tested for COVID-19, authorities allege in the document.
Gosh told the Intermountain Medical Center employee on the phone he would bring a bomb and put it inside the cafeteria or conference room, warning the person to keep their family safe. The hospital is located in the Salt Lake City suburb of Murray.
Gosh, 41, was arrested on suspicion of threat of terrorism.
He has not been charged and it’s unknown if he has an attorney. He was being held in a county jail on $10,000 bail.
It’s unknown if Gosh had symptoms of the virus or some other reason to believe he was at risk.
Intermountain Medical Center officials didn’t immediately return an email seeking comment about the incident.
