Olympic Heights' Matt Klotz Arrested – Bomb Threat?

matthewklotzThe Palm Beach Sheriff’s blotter shows that Matthew Klotz was booked early this morning, after being arrested by Boca Raton PD. Court records indicate the arrest happened the night before. He’s accused under the Florida statute regarding: “False reports concerning planting a bomb, explosive, or weapon of mass destruction in, or committing arson against, state-owned property.” The blotter entry itself says “Threat to Bomb.”

Update: Our legal analysis of the case.

Klotz, 22, played football when he was at Olympic Heights High School, and he has studied at Palm Beach State. His reported address is off New England Boulevard near Lyons Road and north of the Southwinds golf course.
Court records show he’s had a few traffic tickets and a few minor criminal cases from 2010 (marijuana and trespassing) and 2013 (marijuana), but nothing more serious before this.
The city police blotter has not been updated in a few days and we do not have the probable cause affidavit yet, so we can’t provide more details at this time. We hope to update soon, and of course we hope for Mr. Klotz and his family that the case turns out to be nothing.
