Briefcase Destroyed in Beverly Hills After Agent Refuses to Read Script

As an aspiring screenwriter (how many years can you be considered “aspiring” before you're just expiring?)  I can appreciate this writer’s plight, sending out countless script queries only to face rejection. However he went too far in harassing the staff of one literary agency in Beverly Hills, CA. When the would be screen writer dropped off a briefcase with a computer inside, containing his script the cops were called and treated it as if it were an bomb threat! I’ve heard of movies being a bomb at the box office, but this takes it to the next level.
The bizarre story was set in Beverly Hills, where a man visited the office of a literary agent and left behind a briefcase that he said contained a computer, police Sgt. Brad Cornelius said.

The man left instructions for it to be delivered to someone at the business, who told another person in the office, "This guy's been kind of pestering me to read his stuff" and said he neither asked for nor wanted the briefcase, Cornelius said.

A security guard took the case into an alley, and an LAPD police bomb squad was sent to investigate the suspicious package.

Officials sealed off one square block and evacuated dozens of people from a handful of businesses on nearby Rodeo Drive and Santa Monica Boulevard before blowing open the briefcase, which contained no explosives.

Hi, Phil. As I do script editing and got an order today to send out a whole bunch of scripts to a whole bunch of places, I appreciated the timing of this. Geeze... ;-) Nan
