Following an OK2SAY tip around 10 p.m. Thursday, December 9, to the Bloomfield Township Police Department regarding a threat to Bloomfield Hills High School, a 15-year-old student was arrested and arraigned on Friday, December 10, for threatening to commit violence against students or employees on school property.
Lt. Paul Schwab of the Bloomfield Township Police Department said the OK2Say tip included the name of a student that allegedly made the threat, and names of witnesses to the threat.
The police department's school security officer and school liaison officer immediately launched an investigation into the threat. Their investigation led to the arrest of a 15-year-old Bloomfield Hills High School student.
Schwab said the student's parents are cooperating with police. No weapons were found during a search of the student’s home. He was lodged at Children's Village.
On Friday, December 10, at 3:15 p.m., the student was arraigned in front of Oakland County Circuit Court Referee Michael Hand on the charge of threatening to commit violence against students or employees on school property, a one-year misdemeanor.
The 15-year-old was released to his parents with a GPS tether and ordered not to return to school.
The student’s next court date is scheduled for Tuesday, December 14, at 3 p.m.
