Prank Lands DJ in Jail

Web Producer: Amber Griswold

A Texas disc jockey is free on bond following an on-air prank.

Police say the 22-year-old D.J. known on air as 'Lunchbox,' entered a convenience store wearing a ski mask and wandered around the store while talking to his radio audience.

The clerk thought he was going to be robbed and tripped the silent alarm.

Daniel Chappell was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat and could face up to a year in jail.

The gag was to gauge the reaction of people who think they're going to be robbed.

'Lunchbox' is no longer on the air.
