MILWAUKEE -- A suspicious package investigation in downtown Milwaukee took an unexpected turn Monday when a bystander suddenly walked up to the item in question and began rummaging through it, prompting investigators to tackle him. 

 

The backpack was reported shortly before 7 a.m. in the 100 block of W. Wisconsin Avenue, prompting a response by Milwaukee Police and the bomb squad. 

 

Video shows the man crossing the police tape, walking up to the backpack and dumping out the contents. 

 

It’s not clear if the man had any connection to the investigation. 

 

Police have not released any other information at this time.

He must've not been paying attention to his surroundings, and looking for a sweet ground score. lol

Seems like it wasn't the brightest decision a person could make but it probably saved them time waiting for a bomb disposal unit.

i'm wondering what was in the bag.   do you think someone was sitting at home wondering where they left their backpack, when they turned on the TV and said 'uh oh....'
