Man Arrested After Claiming To Be Joe Rogan 2.0 With Bomb In Body

Man Arrested After Claiming To Be Joe Rogan 2.0 With Bomb In Body

Brian Gower reportedly told an officer he 'had a grenade in his a**' and 'wanted to fart'

A man who says he's 'Joe Rogan 2.0' has been arrested in Las Vegas for claiming he 'had a grenade in his a***'.

According to an arrest report obtained by Fox News, Brian Gower, 46, told the cops he had a grenade in his backside and that he 'wanted to fart'.

The incident occurred on 4 February outside the STRAT Hotel and Casino.

Gower was reportedly walking in traffic near the entrance of the hotel where he allegedly shouted that he was going to blow up the building.

The 46-year-old was then placed in handcuffs and was sent to the security office to await police assistance.

It's being reported that Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers were in contact with Gower earlier in the day.

Apparently he said 'he was going to kill his ex-wife'.

However, during the altercation at the Casino, Gower bizarrely claimed to be 'Joe Rogan 2.0' and an actor trying to raise awareness of bomb attacks.

He also talked about Kim Jong-un and told police his lawyer is fictional TV character Saul Goodman, and allegedly made comments about the Illuminati. 

Gower was charged with making threats of terrorism. 

He appeared in court yesterday morning (8 February), but had to be removed for unruly behaviour, KSNV news reports.

His next court appearance is scheduled for 4 March.

LADbible has contacted Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for comment.

Well, speaking of Joe Rogan, the podcast host has been offered $100 million (£74 million) to take his podcast off Spotify.

The 54-year-old has been accused of using his platform to spread Covid-19 misinformation, and the pressure on him recently increased after a compilation of clips showed him using the N-word 24 times.

Video streaming platform Rumble has shared a letter from CEO Chris Pavlovski, in which he seemingly offered 54-year-old Rogan the opportunity to move his show over to the site - for the same sum that Spotify reportedly paid.

The letter reads: "How about you bring all your shows to Rumble, both old and new, with no censorship, for 100 million bucks over four years?

"This is our chance to save the world. And yes, this is totally legit."

Meanwhile, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek has made it clear he doesn't want to part ways with Rogan.

In a message to employees, he said: "While I strongly condemn what Joe has said and I agree with his decision to remove past episodes from our platform, I realise some will want more.

"And I want to make one point very clear – I do not believe that silencing Joe is the answer."

He continued: "We should have clear lines around content and take action when they are crossed, but cancelling voices is a slippery slope. Looking at the issue more broadly, it’s critical thinking and open debate that powers real and necessary progress."
