COLLEGE STATION -

A former Texas A&M employee has been arrested in connection with this morning's bomb threat at the Clayton Williams Jr. Alumni center at Texas A&M University.

43 year-old Michael Francis Thomas has been charged with making a terroristic threat which is a third degree felony.

 Texas A&M University has reopened its alumni center after a "Code Maroon" was issued Friday morning. A bomb threat had been reported at the Clayton Williams Alumni Center.

Authorities were notified about the threat at around 9:26 a.m., and about 100 people were evacuated from the building. Texas A&M authorities are investigated the situation, and reopened the facility at 11:08 a.m.

This is the second bomb threat in three days at Texas A&M. On Wednesday, A&M searched Kyle Field and the surrounding buildings after they received a similar threat.

Thomas is also being called a person of interest in the bomb threat at Kyle Field yesterday.

The stadium and surrounding buildings were evacuated after a threatening message was found written on a wall. No explosives were found yesterday, either.
