Man Arrested Over SXSW Bomb-Threat Not Connected To Other Austin Bombings

Police have dismissed a connection between a man who emailed a bomb threat shutting down a concert by The Roots at SXSW to the three other bombings in Austin this past week.

Police arrested 26-year white male Trevor Weldon Ingram (who is also NOT a Muslim) with making a terrorist threat. “There are no indications of any broader security concern for any activities relating to this incident,” Police later announced.

Questlove of The Roots defended the decision to cancel the SXSW show after one dick called him “condescending” and “an ass to your fans”.

“But you still whining about not seeing a show after you were told (& tweeted you DIDNT BELIEVE) what happened….doesn’t make you look….selfish tho ? But nevermind safety just “shut up & play yer show!” right?,” Questlove responded.

Police have no clear idea who is responsible for the current wave of Austin bombings. Residents are warned to not open any suspicious packages.
