SAN DIEGO (AP) — A man arrested on suspicion of making a fake bomb threat that prompted the Thanksgiving Day closure of a San Diego County interstate will not face felony charges.

The Los Angeles Times reports the county district attorney declined Wednesday to charge 28-year-old Victor Manuel Diaz.

The case was sent to the city attorney, who will consider whether to file misdemeanor charges of making a false police report.

Diaz was arrested on two terrorism-related felony counts after allegedly making a cellphone call to his sister and telling her that a bomb had been placed in her car.

Both the northbound and southbound lanes of I-15 were shut down at Miramar Way as a bomb squad responded.

About an hour later, the sister received another call, and this time the caller identified himself as her brother.
