A September indictment unsealed last month accuses Daniel Rippy of making the “electronic communication” threat from California during the annual game between Ohio State and the University of Michigan in 2018, which was played in Columbus that year. Ohio State won the game 62-39. Rippy was arrested Dec. 28 in Livermore, California, and released on bond Monday. A court filing the same day seeking his arrest says he didn’t report to authorities as required.

Neighbor Bob Lloyd tells WZZM-TV that he heard a sound “and could just see the house going.” The home’s owner was at another property when it fell.
