Metro detectives arrested a Columbia man for calling in a fake bomb threat early Wednesday morning.

According to police, Joshua Williamson, 28, called Nissan Stadium security and urged the CMA events scheduled for Sunday to be canceled.

Detectives tracked Williamson down through the phone he used to make the false threat and arrested him at a downtown business where he works.

Williamson confessed to making the call and police determined there was no credible threat.

Williamson is charged with making a false report of an emergency, which is a felony. He was also wanted in Columbia for an outstanding aggravated burglary warrant.
