You know - if the guy had one of those "Complaint Dept - take a number" grenade thingies at his desk, I can understand his coworkers being freaked out.

A Tonawanda business was evacuated early this morning after an employee found what he thought was an explosive device in the work space of Paul Kaiser.
Kaiser, 26, of 12335 Bullis Road, East Aurora, was charged in Le Roy yesterday with criminal possession of a weapon after a homemade hand grenade was allegedly found in the trunk of his car.
At 8:30 a.m., a co-worker at Anderson Equipment Company reported finding what appeared to be an explosive device in Kaiser's area of the building.
It turned out to be a novelty item and posed no threat, according to WIVB.
The Erie County Bomb Squad searched the building and found no evidence of weapons or explosive devices concealed there.
According to WIVB, authorities do not believe Kaiser planted the novelty item with the intent to scare people. He faces no new charges in Erie County related to this incident.
