A former Texas A&M University employee has been arrested by University Police in connection with the bomb threat at the Clayton Williams Jr. Alumni Center Friday morning. Michael Francis Thomas, 43, has been charged with making a terroristic threat, a third degree felony. He was taken into custody at a Bryan location and is currently being held in the Brazos County jail.

Thomas is also a person of interest in the bomb threat involving Kyle Field earlier in the week, but has not been charged. Additionally, Thomas was arrested on an unrelated warrant obtained by the University Police for credit card abuse. This violation is a state jail felony.
