Man Arrested For Bomb Threat Aimed At Saturday Night SXSW Show

Mar 18, 2018

A 26 year-old man is in custody on charges he made a terroristic threat Saturday when he emailed a bomb threat aimed at the Fair Market venue on East Fifth Street.

The sponsors of an event, which featured the band The Roots, abruptly canceled the scheduled show Saturday evening, citing a "security concern."

Police say they made a complete sweep of the venue, but found no threat. Organizers decided not to continue with the show.

Later that night, police located the person they believe sent the bomb threat. Trevor Wilson Ingram was arrested shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday night.

Ingram is charged with a third-degree felony. Police say there is no indication of any ongoing security threat related to this incident.
