Alabama student arrested after allegedly making threats to LSU's Tiger Stadium during Florida game
A freshman at the University of Alabama is reportedly in the Tuscaloosa County Jail after he allegedly called in a threat to Tiger Stadium during LSU’s game against Florida in primetime on Saturday.
Connor Bruce Croll, 19, was booked into jail early Sunday, where records list him as a “fugitive from justice,” the Tuscaloosa News reported. He is being held without bond and is expected to face charges in Baton Rouge. He was arrested by University of Alabama Police. Details were hard to come by on Monday, as neither school explained exactly what happened, but Alabama spokesman Chris Bryant gave a statement to The 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.”
An LSU spokesman declined to comment on a pending investigation.
The warrant or warrants against Croll weren’t yet available Monday through the East Baton Rouge Clerk of Court’s office. It is unclear what Croll would be charged with.
