Port Barre High Student Arrested After Making Bomb Threat To Get Out of Test
A student at Port Barre High School was arrested yesterday for making a bomb threat to get out of a test he did not want to take, according to police.
Port Barre Police Chief Deon Boudreaux said the 15-year-old was arrested for attempted terroizing after admitting to writing the threat on a bathroom wall.
Police issued the following statement about the incident:
This has become a common occurrence here and this is the second arrest we've made. I wish these kids would realize how serious of a penalty this can bring upon them.
They are juveniles, so, we have to arrest them, book them and release them to the parents but it doesn't just go away. Not only does the school expel them, they will have to face a judge in the St Landry Parish Courthouse and if found guilty, they can be sentenced in a juvenile prison for the rest of their entire teenage years.
