JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A 44-year-old Jonesboro man who is accused of creating a bomb scare at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro has a trial date for later this year.
A judge on Tuesday set a tentative trial date of Dec. 10 for Carlan Neugene Walker.
Walker waived formal arraignment during the Tuesday hearing and pleaded not guilty.
The Jonesboro Sun reports (http://is.gd/j8RjYJ ) Walker is charged with communicating a false alarm to an educational institution, breaking or entering and theft of property, and misdemeanor criminal trespass.
Walker was arrested Sept. 18 after allegedly making a bomb threat that led to the evacuation of University Hall, the International Student Center and the surrounding parking lots.
No bomb was found.
Walker is being held on $200,000 bond in the Craighead County Jail.
