625-pound bomb threat suspect's mother calls him "con man"

GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- Even Jeff Klein's own mother doesn't believe him when the 625-pound Grand Rapids man argues that he's too heavy to appear in court. Klein is charged in connection with a bomb threat at a mobile home park in Cedar Springs in 2012, but his attorney wants the charges dropped because of his weight.

The suspect's mother, Diane Klein, says her son is a "con man" looking to avoid going back to prison. She rejects his claims that he's too obese to walk, and says he belongs in jail.
