CLARKSVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Two men have been arrested for allegedly calling in a bomb threat to the Johnson County courthouse.

Authorities say that 33-year-old Anthony Stepp of Clarksville and 46-year-old Gregory Marshall of Scranton are each charged with felony communicating a false alarm. Officials say bond was set at $1 million for each.

According to authorities a threat was phoned in at the courthouse in Clarksville at 8:45 a.m. on Wednesday and the building was evacuated.
