U of I student held on $250,000 for threats

Posted:

Champaign -- A 19-year-old University of Illinois student is being held on $250,000 bond after authorities say he threatened classmates while referencing the shootings at Virginia Tech.

 

Champaign County jail records show Dany Sammak remains in custody Tuesday morning after he was charged with felony disorderly conduct.

 

Sammak was arrested Saturday after he made what authorities said were "terrorist-like threats" and made shooting gestures with his hands.

 

Local officials worked with campus police and the FBI to search Sammak's home, computer and other property. Investigators say they didn't find any evidence that he was part of a larger plot to harm others.

 

It wasn't immediately clear if Sammak had an attorney.
