Brick man arrested for allegedly threatening to blow up Disney World Resort
A Brick man is arrested in Florida after allegedly telling greeters at a Disney World resort on July 21 that Al-Qaida sent him to "blow the place up", according to multiple reports.
56-year old Gregory Lazarchick was arrested on Tuesday of this week nearly a month and a half after the alleged incident where the Orange County Sheriff's Office said he told a hotel worker at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa that "Al-Qaida sent me here to blow the place up" after being told to "Have a great day" by the hotel worker, Lazarchick reportedly replied, "I don't want to have a great day", according to WFTV 9 ABC in Florida.
His sister cites a trauma in her brother's life that changed him but it's not clear if that led to Gregory's decision to say what he did.
Lazarchick's sister told investigators Gregory suffered "a head injury four years ago and had been resuscitated, brought back to life and has not been right since," according to WFTV 9 ABC in Florida.
The WFTV 9 ABC report also states that his sister told investigators her brother sometimes blurts out inappropriate comments, including about President Barack Obama, and that his wife died last year and his son has autism.
Lazarchick later reportedly said he didn't remember exactly what he said to the Disney worker but was remorseful and apologetic, the Associated Press reported.
No bomb-making materials were found in his room.
He then make his trek back to New Jersey where he was arrested on August 15 and held in the Ocean County Jail after a warrant was issued for his apprehension for the second degree felony crime he allegedly committed, according to Spectrum News 13 in Orlando, Florida.
Lazarchick has been charged with false report of a bombing.
New Jersey Advance Media cited public records for confirming Lazarchick is from Brick Township.
Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
