Utah student allegedly said she would blow up nuclear reactor if Utes football team lost

A University of Utah student was arrested Wednesday after she allegedly threatened to detonate a nuclear reactor on campus if the Utes football team lost to San Diego State over the weekend, university police said.

According to police, the 21-year-old student allegedly posted on social media that if the Utes lost Saturday’s game, she would “detonate the nuclear reactor on campus.”

After police identified and questioned the woman, they arrested the woman Wednesday and she was booked in the Salt Lake County Jail on terrorist threats. She was released later Wednesday, according to online prison records.

Police noted that although the woman intended the comment as a joke, “we have a zero tolerance policy for these types of threats,” Chief Jason Hinojosa said in a statement. According to Utah radio station KSL, which first reported the woman’s arrest, police had issued an affidavit that they had information about the reactor and had attended classes in the same building where the reactor is located.

Utah defeated San Diego State 35-7 on Saturday when quarterback Cam Rising threw for 224 yards and four touchdown passes.
