Arlington police arrested the suspect this afternoon on an outstanding traffic violation.

Larry Donnell Coffey, 26, of Arlington had no gun with him when he was taken into custody, police spokeswoman Tiara Richard said.

Coffey and the woman who reported the threat have a child who goes to the YWCA daycare on campus, and police say they are involved in a custody dispute.

Children at the daycare were never in danger, Richard said, and "there is no indication a criminal offense occurred related to the original call this morning."
