KENT, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities say a 58-year-old Colorado man was jailed after he allegedly told a cab driver to take him to a northeast Ohio university so he could set off a bomb.
Portage County Sheriff's Office said a taxi picked up the man at Akron-Canton Airport, and he told the driver to take him to Kent State University so he could set off the bomb.
The driver relayed the message to his dispatcher, and police later stopped the car and arrested the man.
Louis Koleszar of Glenwood Springs, Colo., was jailed with no bond on a felony charge of making a false alarm. An arraignment was set for Wednesday.
Attorney information wasn't available.
