An Nvidian marketing director faces charges for telling a flight attendant he had a bomb in his jacket.
Yushing Lui, 47, pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge in a San Franciscan court following an incident aboard a Cathay Pacific Airways plane last Thursday.
Sitting in business class, Lui was approached by the stewardess who asked if he had anything in his jacket pockets. Prosecutors said he replied: "I have a bomb in my jacket."
San Francisco Airport Police were called but found no bomb, the Mercury News reports.
Lui reckons he told the flight attendant "something to the effect that he did not have a million dollars inside" the jacket, prosecutors said.
Lui was freed to go off and peddle graphics cards so long as he left $10,000 bail. His trial kicks off on March 8.
