A 23-year-old transient was arrested Sunday evening at Pacific Union College after he allegedly made criminal threats, including that “all hell would break loose” at the college, the Napa County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies were called to the campus regarding a subject who was allegedly trespassing and had been making threats to the campus security office over the phone, authorities said. A no-trespassing order had previously been issued on the suspect, Michael Lynden Wilson.
Someone had posted on Wilson’s Facebook account, threatening to shoot everyone at the school with a .45 caliber gun, the sheriff’s office said.
Wilson said someone had hacked into his account and made those threats, according to officials.
Before Wilson was taken to the Napa County jail Sunday, he had been picked up by Napa police on Friday and taken to the county crisis clinic for treatment after he allegedly threatened to kill himself, authorities said.
Wilson remained in custody Monday morning. The sheriff’s office said he would likely be taken back to the crisis center.
