T.J. Miller, the former star of “Silicon Valley,” who was arrested by federal officials on Monday after he drunkenly called in a bogus bomb threat on an Amtrak train, has been prohibited from contacting any “prospective witness” in the case.

The 36-year-old actor was released on Tuesday after he posted a $100,000 bond after a brief court appearance in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut in New Haven, the New York Post reported.

On Wednesday, the judge assigned to the case added a provision to the man’s release declaring that he “shall not contact any prospective witness in this case,” according to a court spokesperson.

“There is no indication that defendant has or intends to contact any prospective witnesses,” the judge stated.

Under the original conditions of Miller’s release, Judge Jeffrey Alker Meyer required that the man only travel within the United States, and must not break any federal, state or local law, and participate in the collection of a DNA sample.

The FBI busted T.J. Miller on charges that carry up to five years behind bars in connection with the March 18th incident.

Officials said Miller made the bogus 911 call from an Amtrak train he was on to report that a female passenger “has a bomb in her bag.”

His next court date is set for May 1st.
