It was no joking matter to law enforcement or the thousands of people who were visiting the Statue of Liberty.

A 42-year-old man is accused of claiming to be a well-known terrorist and calling in a threat to blow up the Statue of Liberty, The Hill reports. 

The FBI and other law enforcement arrested Jason Smith, who is accused of calling 911 on April 24 and saying he was Abdul Yasin, the lone suspect in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Authorities took the threat serious, sending in police dogs and evacuating more than 3,200 people.

Authorities said Smith used his iPad to call in the threat.
