Follow up to Upper Arlington threat

The Dispatch has a follow up story to yesterdays story of a student in the Upper Arlington school district posting Columbine like threats to an internet site.

Police continue to investigate the threat of a "Columbine-style attack" that caused Upper Arlington High School to cancel all activities last night and classes today.

A student at the high school was taken into custody by police yesterday afternoon. He is cooperating with authorities, police said.

The student, who has not been charged, has been released to his parents, city spokeswoman Emma Speight said. She said police have "no concern he has access to weapons at this time."

Last night, no one answered the door at the boy's home.

The school closing came after the 15-year-old sophomore wrote on the Internet about planning an attack, an FBI source told WBNS-TV (Channel 10).

Seems like this is nothing; just a 15 year old talking smack on the internet. Like that never happens.
