A 25-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with a bomb threat this week at the Chattanoogan hotel.

She has been charged with making a false report, reckless endangerment and disruption of an assembly, he said.

The bomb threat was phoned in about 8 p.m. Monday. The entire building was evacuated as a precaution.

No explosive device was found.
