He was arrested on Wednesday suspicion of threat of terrorism. He has not been charged and it's unknown if he has an attorney. It's unknown if Gosh had symptoms of the virus or some other reason to believe he was at risk. Intermountain Medical Center officials didn't immediately return an email seeking comment about the incident.
