A joke about setting off explosives in his semi leads to a complete shutdown of Interstate 29 near Salix, Iowa today.

While parked at a weigh station, officers say 34-year-old Alexey Artemenko of Forriston, Minnesota told them he had a truck full of explosives he could detonate at any time. Officers evacuated the area and closed both lanes of I-29. At about three a Hazmat team and bomb sniffing dogs were brought in and the truck was opened.
