Ralmanzow Bell caused massive panic at an Iowa restaurant on Friday night. The 21-year-old jumped up on the bar, yelled at everyone to be quiet and then yelled: ‘Allah is the only one true god’.
Everyone at the Horsewood’s Restaurant in Caldwell, Iowa immediately ran from the room. Police were on the scene within a few minutes, but the bartenders already had Bell under control. One patron told local news, “We thought he had a bomb in his backpack.”
But Ralmanzow Bell wasn’t declaring a terrorist attack. He was merely drunk, said authorities.
Christopher Ozuna ripped Bell’s backpack off and immediately began to run.
Bell was examined at a nearby hospital for intoxication before he was booked into Canyon County jail. He has been charged with disorderly conduct. Houdley said Bell, who has an extensive history with police, was ‘shocked’ by his own actions when he sobered up.
Authorities have since forwarded information about Bell’s case to the FBI.
