Monroe said his agency had received a suggestion from police in the nearby town of Versailles that Carroll should go to hospital to visit a relative and was classified as potentially armed and dangerous.
Police intercepted Carroll as he was leaving the hospital. The suspect was carrying several guns and bulletproof vests.
Investigators discovered “some” suspected explosive devices in Carroll’s car parked outside the emergency room, Monroe said.
The police chief refused to climb to the top, which led to Carroll’s arrest, and it is not known if he intended to detonate the explosives.
No one was injured in the incident, in which authorities blocked traffic in the area for more than four hours.
Bombing agents were photographed at the scene and a demining robot appears to be controlling several cars in the parking lot.
Monroe declined to say how long Carroll had been on the Versailles police radar or why.
He denied rumors on social media that the suspect threatened to take people hostage in hospital.
The university issued a statement confirming that the threatening situation ended at 3 p.m.
Police were seen outside a house in Versailles believed to be Carroll’s Thursday afternoon.
