There's an arrest but no apparent motive in the bomb threat that led authorities to evacuate the Louisiana State University campus earlier this week.
Authorities said William Bouvay Jr., 43, of Baton Rouge, admitted making the phone call, according to the Associated Press. LSU Police Capt. Corey Lalonde told the news service that Bouvay was not a student at the school and does not seem to have a connection to the campus. A motive is not known at this time, he said.
The school received a threatening 911 phone call at 10:32 a.m. local time Monday. The caller claimed that there were several bombs stashed on campus, all rigged to go off in about two hours, according to a statement posted on LSU's website.
The campus has about 30,000 students, professors and employees, and university officials quickly sounded the alarm. That sent thousands of people spilling out into the streets and jamming traffic. Bomb-squad officers with explosives-sniffing dogs searched the campus but found nothing.
