GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Police arrested a woman for making a bomb threat on the University of Florida campus.

Jessica Ward, 24, told them she sent the threat so she could get out of work and get some “me time.”

The threat was made last week, and she was arrested Tuesday.

She works for Aramark at a coffee kiosk on the campus.
