An Alabama fan has been arrested for allegedly calling in a threat to LSU’s Tiger Stadium during last Saturday night’s contest between the Florida Gators and the Tigers.
University of Alabama freshman Connor Bruce Croll, 19, was arrested and booked into jail early Sunday, where he is being held without bond.
University of Alabama Police arrested Croll, but neither UA nor LSU officials provided any details about the incident.
UA spokesman Chris Bryant released the following statement to the Tuscaloosa News on Monday afternoon:
“We are aware of the arrest of a UA freshman over the weekend. Threats and pranks can have serious ramifications and necessitate an appropriate response. The university and UAPD are cooperating fully with the investigation, but we cannot provide any additional details on a pending matter. UA will follow its student conduct policies and procedures. The LSU community has always been gracious to us, and we regret these events.”
According to Louisiana State Police noted that “the terrorizing law in Louisiana is a felony and states that people who intentionally communicate information of a crime of violence, which causes the public to be in sustained fear for their safety, causes the evacuation of a building, or other serious disruption to the general public can be arrested and fined up to $15,000 and/or imprisoned for up to 15 years.”
