(Scroll down for video) A woman, who had no criminal history, called police to report a bomb threat to get her criminal boyfriend out of trouble.

The woman of Lake Wales, Florida, was waiting in her car while her boyfriend went to see his probation officer.

The probation officer asked 38-year-old Jason Drake, for a urine sample at 8:30 a.m., but her refused to comply.

He was ordered to wait in the building until he had to use the bathroom so he can provide the urine sample.

During that time, Drake communicated with his girlfriend, 31-year-old Deniz Martinez, via text messages. He claims that after he waited six hours at the office, he decided to do something to get himself out of there.

Drake allegedly asked Martinez to call police to report that someone threatened to blow up the building. She then used her own cellphone to place the call.

Investigators said that around 2:40 p.m., Martinez called 911 and said that there was a man in front of the Probation and Parole building located at 1289 1st St. South in Winter Haven, and he was going to blow the building up.

Everyone was evacuated as police searched the area. Police determined that the call was a hoax and they located Martinez through the cellphone she used to make the call.

She was arrested for filing a false report concerning planting a bomb.

Drake, who was on probation for grand theft and drug possession, managed to avoid taking the urine test.

He was later arrested for violation of probation since he did not produce the required urine urinalysis. He could be facing more charges for his role in the bomb threat.
