By Richard Weizel MILFORD, Connecticut (Reuters) – A woman who dropped out of Connecticut’s Quinnipiac University was arrested Sunday night after admitting to calling in two bomb threats in an effort to keep her family from learning she had dropped out of school, police said. Danielle Shea, 22, of Quincy, Massachusetts, made the threats after arriving at the ceremony in a cap and gown with her mother, who didn’t know she had dropped out, and told police she “panicked” when relatives noticed her name was not on the list of graduates. Police said Shea called in two bomb threats to the library so the graduation ceremony would be canceled. Local police responded to the Quinnipiac University library as an estimated 5,000 people, including the 388 graduates, evacuated the area and quickly moved to the indoor location, according to John Morgan, university spokesman.
