HOLLYWOOD, Calif — Hollywood Boulevard was temporarily closed Thursday over a bomb scare at a Hooters restaurant.

Los Angeles Police Department officials said a man walked into Hooters with an ice chest he claimed had a bomb inside.

The suspect was later taken into custody.

He told officers: “I was just joking,” according to a law enforcement source.

The LAPD bomb squad is sweeping the restaurant to determine whether there is a threat.
