Police arrest suspect in Arkansas bank bomb scare

(AP) - A 73-year-old Arkansas woman who was forced into a bank with what she believed was a bomb strapped to her ankle says she's relieved that authorities have made an arrest.

Betty Davis told reporters Thursday the suspect said he would blow everything up if she did anything wrong.

She says she ran out of the bank after she told employees that she had what she thought was a bomb strapped to her leg.

Authorities in northwest Arkansas say they've made an arrest in the case.

Davis told authorities that a man was holding her and her husband captive in their home before he forced her to the bank. Authorities later found her husband tied up but unharmed.

Investigators determined the device attached to Betty Davis was not explosive.
