Tiger Woods' half-brother was arrested in Arizona on Thursday after officials say he called up the government building where he works and threatened to BLOW IT UP ... TMZ Sports has learned.

58-year-old Earl Dennison Woods Jr. -- who has the same father as Tiger -- allegedly called in a bomb threat to the Arizona Department of Economic Security office in Phoenix around 8:30 AM.

Security evacuated the building and conducted a search -- and during the search, Earl allegedly admitted he made the call ... but said it was supposed to be a joke.

Ha. Ha.

Officials weren't laughing and Woods was arrested and booked on suspicion of use of an electronic communication device to terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass.

If convicted, Woods faces up to 6 months in jail.

I think TMZ is straight up lying on this man.

Sorry --- but I checked and It is statistically impossible to be this moronic and then do something so stupid and call it a joke. Seriously, TMZ you don't have to lie on the man. Just dig some true dirt please. Call his momma I bet there is some Woods dirt there!!!

Where have they been hiding this guy? Never heard. Tiger has a half brother. Do they ever get together do they speak to each other? I hope TIger is not like Obama with half brothers in every country around the world living in card board boxes.

In Africa, when a man marries all the tribesman bangs his bride as part of the welcoming in ceremony. I wonder if Tiger's half brother got to bang his former wife.
