IU Student Arrested on Terroristic Mischief Charges


An Indiana University Student is in custody after police find a package with the words “Call the Bomb Squad” written on it.  

The package was found by a school employee near the “Student Central on Union Building” just after 8:30 Thursday night.

The building was vacant at the time.

After the suspicious white box was examined by x-ray by police, it was determined to be books.

Student Daven Patton faces a level 5 felony charge “terroristic mischief”.

Evidence inside Patton’s home linked him to the crime.
