Man charged for central London ruckus
London: The British man, whose antics created much chaos in central London and led to a hostage situation, has been charged with possession of a weapon, false imprisonment and making a bomb hoax after the siege.
Michael Green, 48, who was arrested after creating chaos in central London on Friday, has been remanded in custody and will appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates` Court tomorrow.
Due to the chaos, Tottenham Court Road and the two nearby Tube stations of Goodge Street and Warren Street were closed as a precaution.
Detective Chief Inspector Raffaele D`Orsi, of the Metropolitan Police said Friday`s event was "extremely rare", and added: "I can confirm it is all back to business as usual in Tottenham Court Road and the surrounding area".
Green, who reportedly had a grievance against a logistics company based in the building he laid a siege on, was arrested after a three-hour drama in which he took four people hostage and threatening to blow himself up.
Police negotiators held a dialogue with Green, who had failed to obtain a driving license thrice.
