School Alert: Zephyrhills High School Student Arrested
PSO has arrested a 14-year-old Zephyrhills High School student overnight for making threats on social media toward the school. The student admitted they posted a photo of a weapon, which was determined to be an airsoft gun, on social media because they thought it would be funny. The student was charged with Written Threats to Kill. To be clear, there is no threat to the school.
Once again, PSO urges parents and guardians to speak with their students about what they post on social media and the serious consequences making threats, even as a joke, can have.
