A student from the University of Alabama has been arrested, accused of making a threat against LSU's Tiger Stadium on Saturday.

According to the Advocate, Tuscaloosa News reports that 19-year-old Connor Bruce Croll was arrested on Sunday. He is accused of calling in a threat to the stadium during the game against Florida on Saturday. Details on the threat were not provided.

The University of Alabama released a statement on the arrest.

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.
