Hours after the show's cancellation, the Austin Police Department announced it had arrested a suspect, 26-year-old Trevor Ingram.

Police said they received a report of a bomb threat from a Live Nation Music representative who had been warned of the alleged plot in an email.

As excited fans lined up outside of Austin's Fair Market, Bud Light and parent company, Anheuser-Busch, canceled the 3rd annual "Roots & Friends Jam Session" after a bomb threat was reported to the Austin Police Department on Saturday (Mar. 17).
