Tulsa's River Spirit Casino was evacuated overnight because of a bomb threat. The threat was made about 11 p.m. on Thursday night.

The threat was made via a telephone and the caller implied the bomb was on the casino floor.

About 100 people were on the gaming floor at the time of the call.

Authorities ordered the casino emptied and Creek Nation law enforcement swept the casino looking for any sign of an explosive.  After turning-up nothing, gambling were allowed to resume.
