MERIDEN, CONNECTICUT- Bond was set at $10,000 for a former student at Quinnipiac University who called in a bomb threat on graduation day to keep her family from knowing she dropped out of school.
Danielle Shea of Qunicy, Massachusetts was arrested on Sunday in a cap and gown.
She was arraigned on Monday and her lawyer asked for her release but the judge said he was troubled by her actions.
She didn't attend the university this year but her mother paid thousands toward what she thought was her education.
Police say Shea panicked when relatives didn't see her name on the graduation list and she used the bomb threat to try to have the ceremony canceled.
