Ahead of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s (D-N.Y.) visit to Baton Rouge, La., on Saturday, a college student was arrested this week for making a threat against the presidential candidate, according to court documents.

Richard Wargo, a 19-year-old student at Louisiana State University, indicated to an acquaintance that he wanted to commit an act of terrorism against Clinton, according to the documents, which were posted on

The acquaintance reportedly told police that he believed Wargo wanted to commit arson at Clinton’s Louisiana office. The acquaintance argued that the act would make the former first lady and current frontrunner for the Democratic nomination more popular. Wargo reportedly responded: “True, but have you ever heard of a dead president?”

Wargo also indicated that he wanted to commit the act while Clinton is in Baton Rouge, the documents say. The senator is scheduled to address the National Conference of Black Mayors on Saturday.

Wargo was arrested Thursday and his dorm room has been searched.
