Nancy Dekenipp Russell faces a charge of falsely reporting a bomb threat. Russell, 46, was ordered released from the Palm Beach County Jail Sunday without bond.

A Palm Tran bus driver told West Palm Beach police that Russell, carrying two small backpacks, got into an argument with a rider over cigarettes, the report said. When Russell got into a second argument over cigarettes, she was ordered off the bus by the driver.

“My husband is an ATF agent and I put a bomb on the bus,” Russell allegedly told the driver as she stepped off bus.

The bus was checked and no explosive device was found, the report said.
