LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A write-in candidate for U.S. Senate in Iowa has been arrested on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus after allegedly threatening a student worker who was removing his campaign signs.

UNL's assistant police chief, Carl Oestmann (EAST-man), says 41-year-old Philip Storey, of Council Bluffs, Iowa, was being held Saturday in the Lancaster County jail.

Authorities didn't know whether he had an attorney. A message left at a number listed for Storey wasn't immediately returned.

Oestmann says Storey approached the student about 8 a.m. Thursday and threatened to kill her or send someone to kill her if she continued to take his signs. Campaign signs aren't allowed on university property.

Oestmann says Storey was arrested Friday afternoon on suspicion of making terroristic threats.
