(AP) - A man has been charged in connection with an online bomb threat at a Connecticut minor league baseball stadium amid a dispute between the team's owner and a Muslim civil rights group.
Norwich police say they arrested 44-year-old James Quinn, of Waterford, after the bomb threat prompted a search of Dodd Stadium on Friday and delayed the game for about 10 minutes. No explosives were found.
Quinn was charged with threat involving hazardous substance and breach of peace.
The threat came hours after Connecticut Tigers owner E. Miles Prentice announced he would meet with leaders of various faiths, after refusing to meet with a Muslim civil rights group he accused of supporting terrorists.
Quinn could not be reached for comment Saturday. A phone listing for him could not be found.
