A Michigan man accused of making threats against Tiffin University had a hearing in Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court on Wednesday.

Reginald A. Morrissette Jr., 27, of Detroit, was charged with making a terroristic threat, a third-degree felony.

Acting Judge Susan Jones set Morrissette’s bond at $500,000, cash or surety, during a hearing in Tiffin-Fostoria Municipal Court on Wednesday afternoon.

Morrissette allegedly threatened to commit arson, murder and felonious assault to intimidate or coerce TU staff, students and campus visitors Sept. 25, according to court records.

TU staff reported receiving a phone call at Friedley Hall, 18 S. Sandusky St., with the caller threatening to blow up the performing arts building and to set the building on fire and that he had a silenced gun he intended to use to shoot people, court records state.
