A South by Southwest showcase concert featuring The Roots was canceled yesterday because of an emailed bomb threat, and now an arrest has been made in connection with that threat.  Late last night, Austin police arrested 26-year-old Trevor Weldon Ingram, charging hism with making a terroristic threat, which is a third degree felony.  In a statement, APD says there are no indications of any broader security concerns.
