The half-brother of golf star Tiger Woods was arrested Thursday in Phoenix for allegedly making a false bomb threat at the government building where he works.

Phoenix police said 58-year-old Earl Dennison Woods Jr. is accused of calling in the threat at the Department of Economic Security building about 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

Police say they were called after DES employees alerted building security.

More than 100 people were evacuated from the building before Woods came forward and told police the phone call was meant as a joke and he didn't expect his co-workers to take it seriously.

Police said Woods has been booked on suspicion of attempting to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass others. They say Woods is apologetic and cooperating with the investigation. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.

Woods' daughter, Cheyenne Woods, is a professional golfer.
