A police chief in Indiana says a man arrested for threatening to go on a school shooting spree, was just blowing off steam.

Von Meyer was arrested at his home in Cedar Lake Saturday, a day after he and his wife had an argument.

She told police, he threatened to kill her where she worked, at the Jane Ball Elementary School.

She said he also threatened to kill as many people as he could.

But Police Chief Jerry Smith now says he believes Meyer just made an empty threat in the heat of an argument.

Meyer is charged with intimidation, domestic battery and resisting law enforcement.
