LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Social media threats put a Purdue wrestler in jail Tuesday, but Thursday he bonded out.

Shawn Streck was booked into the Tippecanoe County Jail with a preliminary charge of intimidation.

Purdue Police Captain Song Kang said on Monday the station received a call from Elmhurst College in DuPage County, Illinois.

The campus police allege Streck trespassed and threatened to harm one of its students.

That student turned out to be Streck's ex-girlfriend.

Kang says Streck was trying to rekindle his relationship, but was asked to leave the Elmhurst campus.

Streck may face more charges from DuPage County.
