BATON ROUGE - Authorities in Alabama have arrested a man wanted in Louisiana on accusations that he called in a fake bomb threat in November to the Jimmy Swaggart Ministries campus.

Casey Rayborn Hicks, an East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, says 36-year-old Robert Todd Clemmons, of Russellville, Ala., was arrested by U.S. Marshals last week and booked him into the Franklin County, Ala., jail on counts of terrorizing, communicating false information of a planned arson and improper telephone communication.

Hicks says Clemmons waived his right to extradition and is awaiting a trip to Baton Rouge, where he'll be booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

It was unclear whether Clemmons has an attorney.
