Austin Radio DJ Wears Ski Mask Into Store: Gets Arrested

Dateline: 07/09/04

He goes by the name "Lunchbox" on the air. Dan Chappell from KHFI - known locally as 96.7 KISS-FM in Austin, Texas decided it would be fun to walk into a convenience store wearing a ski mask, while describing it all to his listeners.

And although Lunchbox only planned to buy a pack of gum and said nothing else that might have been considered a verbal threat that seems to have been irrelevant. The store clerk hit the silent alarm as soon as he saw him.

Police arrived and arrested Chappell for making a terrorist threat. Authorities say the DJ not only endangered his life but also those around him.

Management at KHFI issued a statement expressing concern over the incident.
