13-year-old girl arrested over Facebook message
Taking it a bit too far, aren’t we?
A 13-year-old middle school student has been arrested in South Carolina over a Facebook message.
The teen talked about blowing up Chesterfield Ruby Middle School in a Facebook message to a 20-year-old woman. Authorities took the threat seriously and proceeded to search the school with explosive detecting dogs. The 13-year-old was arrested, but the 20-year-old was not.
Sheriff Sam Parker told the press that someone saw the threatening message and alerted local authorities. Parker believes the girls were just joking, but the authorities were clearly not in the mood.
The teen could be released to the custody of her parents until her case goes to court.
