The man who shut down portions of the UW-Madison campus and the University Hospital Tuesday night is now in custody.
19-year old Jesse Miller was picked up this morning in San Diego and now UW-Madison police Sgt. Jason Whitney says that may be where he was making those threatening phone calls.
Police believe Miller made several calls that night claiming he had a gun at the hospital parking lot and reporting a bomb threat and gunshots.
At first they thought it was a suicide by cop threat but now it may have been a hoax made a thousand miles away.
Sgt. Whitney says there was information later that night that Miller may be on the West Coast but the break came Thursday night when police traced a call to a Madison address. Madison detectives checked it out and made the san Diego connection.
Police had described Miller as a young man with a history of mental problems. He was AWOL from the Dane County Huber work release center where he was serving time for armed robbery.
No word on when Miller will return to Wisconsin or what charges he faces.
