Linda Gayle Wilson, 44, of Bryceville and Baldwin, Florida was arrested after she allegedly telephoned law enforcement in Jacksonville, Florida to say a bomb was going to explode on the Carnival Cruise Line's cruise ship, Carnival Fascination on May 9, 2010. Carnival Fascination had a reported 2,052 passengers aboard at the time of the bomb threat.

A warrant for her arrest was issue December 15, 2011 and she was arrested on December 21, 2011, arrest record #2011040148. She was later released on a $20,000 bond and was placed in the electronic monitoring program.Wilson entered a plea of not guilty.

The case was investigated by the Coast Guard Investigative Services, Customs and Border Protection, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kevin C. Frein.

On May 2, the judge revoked Wilson's bail after her third party custodian, Henry Charles Brooks asked to be relieved of his responsibility. A second third party custodian was suggested by Wilson, but was denied by the court after the court learned the suggested custodian had prior felony convictions in 2006 and 2009 for stealing pain killers from the dentist office she had worked in.

Wilson was on prescription medications at the time the new custodian was suggested. The court also learned that Wilson had a prior conviction for illegally obtaining prescription medication.
