Police: Mass. man menaced station for song request
Alex Finnegan was arraigned Thursday on two threat charges
BRIDGEWATER, Mass. — A former college student and ex-disc jockey is accused of threatening to "shoot up" a Massachusetts campus radio station because it wouldn't play a song he requested.
Alex Finnegan was arraigned Thursday on two threat charges.
Police say Finnegan graduated from Bridgewater State University in May and used to be a DJ at its radio station, WBIM.
The station received multiple calls Monday from someone who requested a song by the punk band Rufio. The station did not have the song and police say the caller said he would "come in with a gun and shoot up the place."
The Enterprise of Brockton reports that Finnegan wrote a letter of apology saying the whole thing was a joke and he was sorry for scaring anyone.
