Louisiana Man Arrested over LSU Bomb Threat

A man has been arrested in connection with a bomb threat that led to the evacuation of Louisiana State University, school police said on Wednesday, but it was unclear whether he was linked to recent threats against other universities.

Police said they arrested William Bouvay Jr., 42, of Baton Rouge, in the LSU case late Tuesday on charges of communicating false information of a planned bombing.

LSU evacuated buildings on the Baton Rouge campus after receiving a call on Monday warning of multiple bombs.
