SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Police allege a San Francisco man angry at being rejected for the "Price is Right" TV show forced the evacuation of a high-rise by claiming he had a bomb.

The man allegedly said the tube was a bomb he devised because he was angry about being rejected as a contestant on the "Price is Right," said police who arrested the man after determining the tube contained no explosives, the Chronicle reported.

Police said it was not clear whether the law firm had connections to the man or the game show.
