SALT LAKE CITY -- A Utah man who was once a promising college basketball coach has been arrested after police said he forced the evacuation of an elementary school with what he claimed was a trunk full of explosives, authorities said Tuesday.After three hours of negotiations, no weapons or explosives were found and no injuries were reported at the school about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City. About 250 students, along with faculty, were evacuated from Eagle Valley Elementary on Monday afternoon.The suspect, Christopher Dewitt Craig, 35, of Eagle Mountain, was a player and coach until police in Colorado issued a warning about three years ago saying hed been describing himself as an Islamist jihadist. The warning came months after his resignation from a head coaching job at Midland College in Texas.Craig drove up to the school in Eagle Mountain, Utah, on Monday wearing a long, light-green tunic, a white cloth wrapped around his head and a knit face mask, police said.He told a school secretary to evacuate the building, then spoke to police negotiators about the evils of society, and unspecified mistreatment before he surrendered himself, said Utah County Sheriffs Sgt. Spencer Cannon.Craigs motives are still under investigation, but may be related to mental health issues, he said. Police also believe he sent emails to several news organizations shortly before the threat decrying what he called racism against white police officers, among other things.No attorney was immediately listed for Craig in court records, and no publicly listed phone number for him was immediately available.Those who knew him described a talented coach whose career was on the rise before it was apparently derailed by personal struggle, according to the El Paso Times.This is an American tragedy, Rus Bradburd, a former assistant basketball coach at the University of Texas at El Paso, told the paper. He just needs help. Its heartbreaking.Craig was a player at UTEP and Arizona Western College in Yuma, Arizona, before he went into coaching.He served as head basketball coach at whats now Utah State University Eastern in Price, Utah, from 2007 to 2010. He went on to become an assistant at Northern Colorado University, and then served as head coach in Midland College in Texas before he resigned in 2013 for personal reasons.Several more run-ins with the law followed, including an arrest in Price the next year after police said he drove his car onto a school playground.Craig was booked into the Utah County Jail on Monday for investigation of making a threat of terrorism, interfering with an arresting officer, failure to disclose identity, disrupting operations of a school and disorderly conduct. Hes been held on $25,000 cash-only bail.---This story has been corrected to show a previous arrest in Utah connected to allegations of driving onto a school playground was in Price, not Eagle Mountain.

OTTAWA, Ontario -- When the Tampa Bay Lightning arrived in Ottawa, they hadnt been pleased with their overall play this season. A strong performance against the Senators was definitely a step in the right direction.Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves, Vladislav Namestnikov and Steven Stamkos scored early in the second period, and the Lightning beat the Senators 4-1 Saturday night.Alex Killorn and Valtteri Filppula also scored for the Lightning, who were playing their first road game of the season.For probably 40-50 minutes it was the best weve played all season, Stamkos said. The first 20 minutes was definitely the most dominating and you build on that.Chris Neil scored the lone goal for the Senators, and Craig Anderson stopped 31 shots.Its clear were just not there yet, Senators coach Guy Boucher said. Weve got work to do. We showed we were able to play with them at times, but to be able to compete with a team thats expected to compete for the Stanley Cup we definitely have more work to do.Anderson was solid for much of the game for the Senators, but Killorn was able to sneak one through his right arm to give the Lightning a 3-1 lead midway through the third. It was Killorns fourth goal of the season.Filppula made it 4-1 late in the third.They came out and played a better game than we did right from the start, Ottawas Erik Karlsson said. Unfortunately thats the way its going to be some times. We didnt have our best today.Boucher said part of the problem was trying to force plays.Its what hurt us in the first and killed us in the third, he said. We were a lot better in the second when we played with speed and pressure and stopped trying to make plays where there were none.ddddddddddddNamestnikov opened the scoring 2:36 into the second with the man advantage.We came out and got the lead for the first time this year which was nice.Tampa made it 2-0 at the six-minute mark, on the power play again, as Namestnikov made a cross-crease pass to Stamkos, who ripped it past Anderson. The Senators challenged the goal believing the play was offside, but after a lengthy review the goal stood.Our start was fine, Anderson said. We got out of the first period 0-0 then got into a little penalty trouble. The (penalty kill) just didnt get the job done. Im a big part of that. My job there is to be a big part of that PK, and I wasnt good enough.. The Senators managed to get on board with 4:33 left in the middle period as Neil picked up his own rebound. Vasilevskiy made the initial save, but wasnt able to freeze the puck and Neil got a stick on it.Game notes D Thomas Chabot and LW Matt Puempel were healthy scratches for the Senators. ... D Matt Taormina was a healthy scratch for Tampa Bay. ... This marked the first time Ottawa coach Guy Boucher faced his old team since being fired from the Lightning in 2013.UP NEXTLightning: At Toronto on Tuesday night in the second game of a five-game trip.Senators: At Vancouver on Tuesday night in the opener of a three-game trip to western Canada.
