Court date set for man accused of "bomb threats" at Jools show

The Cambridge Evening News reports that Gary Eels, the 39-year-old man arrested in the exclusive champagne bar at July's Newmarket Racecourse show, will get a trial before magistrates on Nov. 3. Police officers reported that as they approached a rowdy and drunken Eels, he said, "I am a bomber. I am a bomber." Police found no bomb. This alleged incident took place shortly after the London Underground bombings. Eels previously pleaded not guilty to making threats, though he admitted to drunk and disorderly behavior, the paper reported. The paper's most recent update on this story is illustrated with a nice picture of Jools at the show, rather than the guy going to court.
