LSU Bomb Scare Suspect To Face Additional Charges
William Bouvay, Jr., the man police say called in a bomb threat at LSU three weeks ago, now faces a charge of communicating a false bomb threat.
Bouvay was already indicted by a federal grand jury in Baton Rouge on September 20 for allegedly making the bomb threat, a charge that carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison if convicted. This latest charges carries a maximum sentence of 20 years. He’ll be arraigned on that charge tomorrow.
Bouvay was arrested just days after he made the alleged call, which police say was done from a cell phone on Skysail Avenue in Baton Rouge, where authorities say they found Bouvay. Police say Bouvay eventually confessed to making the call and told them where they could find the cell phone he used to make the bomb threat.
