University of Arkansas Police say they were already planning on heightening security, especially around the athletic facilities, after Long's announcement.
After learning about the online chatter of possible death threats, we even received posts on our own Facebook page stating, "Riots are in session" and "Jeff Long wear ur vest."
"There are some posts on social media outlets that are not, while not directly threatening, they do cause us to be looking for that type of thing," said Lieutenant Gary Crain with UAPD.
Lt. Crain says his department is prepared in case anything gets out of hand.
"It doesn't matter how the information is received, if it's a threat we take it seriously, and if we come up with evidence that a law has been broken, we will make sure that that's taken to the proper authorities."
According to prosecutors, such threats could lead to Felony Terroristic Threatening charges and up to six years behind bars.
If you hear of anything that could be a possible threat toward Long or anyone else for that matter, contact police, because Lt. Crain says they would rather be safe than sorry.
