A University of Alabama freshman is accused of calling in a bomb threat at LSU’s Tiger Stadium during the LSU-Florida game Saturday night.
Connor Bruce Croll, 19, of Crozet, Virginia, was arrested and jailed Sunday as a “fugitive from justice.” He faces unspecified charges in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
According to a police affidavit obtained by WBRZ in Baton Rouge, Croll told police that he called in a bomb threat during the Tigers’ 42-28 win because a friend was “on the verge of losing a large bet.”
Authorities didn’t immediately provide further detail about the nature of the threat or say whether Croll intended to carry it out.
