Quest Field, Seattle Quest Field, Seattle

SEATTLE, Wash. - The FBI says the bomb threats on seven NFL stadiums, including Seattle's Quest Field, is a hoax.

The Homeland Security Department alerted authorities on Wednesday to a threat that football stadiums would be hit this weekend with radiological dirty bombs.  The threat was based on a statement posted on an internet website.

Federal authorities questioned a twenty year-old Milwaukee man about the threat and says he has no ties to any terrorist groups.

The man was not arrested.
