AceShowbiz - Deadpool 2 star T.J. Miller is reportedly seeking to postpone a hearing in his fake bomb threat case in a bid to work out a plea deal.
The actor and comedian was arrested in April for allegedly providing false information about a bomb threat to federal authorities after claiming a woman wearing a scarf had a "bomb in her bag" on an Amtrak train travelling from Washington, D.C. to New York.
Miller reportedly gave authorities the wrong train number, prompting them to stop and search a train in Connecticut, resulting in massive delays and wasted law enforcement efforts. Authorities subsequently determined the 37-year-old was allegedly intoxicated and he made the report after getting into a fight with the woman.
Miller is due back in court on 14 September, but his lawyers and prosecutors have filed legal paperwork stating they are "discussing several matters related to the possibility of resolving the case short of indictment".
According to The Blast, they are requesting the postponement of the hearing until 30 November.
If the parties cannot work out a deal, Miller faces up to five years in prison.
