Police have arrested a suspect in the bomb threat that led to the evacuation of the Louisiana State University campus earlier this week but don't believe he is connected to threats made against three other universities recently. LSU Police Capt. Corey Lalonde said officers arrested William Bouvay Jr., 42, of Baton Rouge late Tuesday night after an investigation by multiple law enforcement agencies.

Lalonde said Bouvay was not an LSU student and appeared to have no connection to the campus. He did not know what the suspect's motive might have been.
