G4 Evacuated in bomb threat scare

Everyone is a little on-the-edge this week, for pretty blatant reasons. G4 is no exception. When a suspicious package arrived at G4 production offices, everyone was evacuated from the building. The authorities were called, and the package was inspected by a bomb squad. Thankfully, the device was not an explosive. Ironically, G4 production offices had called the bomb squad about a bomb prop that they had ordered. G4 office workers were allowed to get back to work the same day of the incident.Source: 1Up
