QUEENSBURY — A man was arrested on two counts of making a terrorist threat Friday in connection to a bomb threat that led to the postponement of the Foothills Council varsity baseball championship game between Queensbury and Amsterdam high schools.

Darrell Scott, 46, allegedly sent bomb threats in the form of emails to Warren County Municipal Center and Queensbury High School, according to the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

The emails, which were sent before 2:39 p.m. threatened “severe loss of life” and indicated that bombs were placed in undisclosed locations in the buildings.
