NEWARK, New Jersey (Reuters) - A 20-year-old Wisconsin grocery clerk has been charged by U.S. authorities with making a hoax threat to detonate "dirty bombs" at seven National Football League stadiums across the United States.

Jake Brahm, who lives at home with his parents in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, was accused of spreading a fake message on the Internet that threatened to hit the sites with weapons of mass destruction and radioactive materials.

If convicted, he faces a maximum of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

"Jake Brahm's unsportsmanlike conduct caused the United States to divert valuable resources from the real battle," Leslie Wiser, FBI special agent in charge Newark division, told a news conference. "This coming Sunday the NFL referees won't be the only ones wearing stripes."

Brahm will appear in federal court in Milwaukee later on Friday. U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie said Brahm would be extradited to New Jersey where he would face the federal charges and that it would up to the other six states to decide if they want to charge him with state offenses.

On Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security warned National Football League officials in Miami, New York, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland, California, and Cleveland about a dirty-bomb threat posted on Monday on an Internet site.

But by Thursday they had declared the threat a hoax.

"There's no evidence that Mr Brahm had the ability or the intention to deliver a dirty bomb to one of these stadiums," Christie said.

They are treating an internet post as an International threat??? Give me a break-just another example how the Gov. has taken away Americans Rights.

The "real battle"? Like enforcing American Democracy on the Middle East?

Making a federal case out of this is stupid assuming this appears as it seems - meaning this is just a 20 year old kid spouting off a bunch of crap on the Internet. I just saw the CNN blurb where some fed is up there saying "don't mess with football" How about the Feds not grandstanding for the cameras about a 20 year old grocery clerk who isn't a threat at all? I think they could of scared the crap out of this kid without going national on this. The FBI should have better things to do than to put together BS press conferences about nothing. I'm a conservative but this pisses me off.

Any of you guys have an opinion on this or are you too busy worrying about Jared Allen's inability to get to the QB? C'mon!

I hope this kid gets sat on by the Feds for his stupid and chilling posts.

That being said I just don't like the Feds holding press conferences like they just caught Osama. This kid is a grocery clerk who lives with his mommy and daddy.
