Homes were evacuated Saturday evening in Tullahoma after a bomb threat.

Tennessee Highway Patrol is responding to the scene in the Jennings Point subdivision where they say a man called in claiming his toilet seat was wired to explode.

Officials say two men got into a heated dispute. When one of the men later sat down on the toilet, he got a phone call from the other man saying the toilet had been equipped with a pressure switch and a bomb that would go off if he stood up.

This is a developing situation. We will update this story when we have more information.
