Trevor Weldon Ingram, 26, has been arrested for making a bomb threat against Fair Market in Austin, which was hosting a Bud Light event headlined by The Roots on Saturday.

According to Variety, he allegedly emailed Live Nation Music on Saturday afternoon, saying there was a bomb in the venue. Police searched the promise and "no threat was found,” but understandably the sponsor decided to cancel the event. With the bomb attacks across Austin over the past couple of weeks, it is understandable why the sponsor would have canceled the event.

Police were able to identify the suspect and he was taken into custody on third degree felony charges of making a terrorist threat.

“There are no indications of any broader security concerns for any activities relating to this incident,” the police report says.

The Roots, Ludacris, Rapsody, Jessie Reyez, Dermot Kennedy and Tank and the Bangas were all scheduled to appear.
