October 10, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A 19-year-old student at Middle Tennessee State University has been arrested on terrorism charges after threatening e-mails forced the cancellation of classes.

Murfreesboro police spokesman Kyle Evans says Justin Davis of Nashville was charged with an act of terrorism and one count of arson. He was jailed on $500,000 bond and did not yet have a lawyer.

Officials canceled classes Thursday and today after campus police said threatening e-mails suggested "large-scale devastation or destruction."
