According to court documents, police responded to an incident back on February 17 after 26-year-old Trevor Ingram allegedly sent threatening emails to eBay employees.

The Austin police subsequently arrested Trevor Weldon Ingram, 26, charging him with making a terroristic threat, a third-degree felony. Rolling Stone reports that it has confirmed the security concern was a bomb threat; Austin Police Department said more information would be made available on Twitter.

An Austin concert set to star The Roots was abruptly canceled because of an unspecified "security concern", event organizers said Saturday night. Even though the concern was quelled Bud Light, the show's sponsor, made a decision to cancel the event.

The Bud Light event was cancelled at 9:40 on Saturday as a precaution.

On Sunday, QuestLove defended the band, saying that fans are still "whining about not seeing the show after you were told what happened". There are no plans to resume tonight's show. #SXSW, ' the festival organization also tweeted. The cancellation was due to the latest bomb threat following an increase in recent bombings in the area.

The Roots drummer, Questlove, addressed fans regarding the show's cancellation. According to authorities, "Austin Police Department began monitoring the threat and responded to the location".

"Uh, welp can't say much but for those in Austin waiting in line to see us tonight", he wrote.

Ingram's motivation for the e-mail threat is not clear.

Austin has witnessed four parcel explosions so far this month, with the last one taking place shortly after Ingram's arrest. Another went off on March 12, critically wounding a 75-year-old woman, just hours after a bomb killed 17-year-old Draylen Mason and injured his mother when they opened a package in their kitchen.
