Teen accused of threatening Pembroke Pines high school on Snapchat

PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have arrested a student accused of making threats toward West Broward High School in Pembroke Pines.

According to Pembroke Pines Police, the 17-year-old boy posted a threatening message on his Snapchat, Thursday.

The teen appeared in court Tuesday morning where the teen’s cousin said it was all just a misunderstanding.

“He’s a really good person,” he said. “He wouldn’t do something this stupid, and I’m sure he really regrets posting that thing.”

The Snapchat post allegedly showed the teen racking a semi-automatic handgun at Nexus Gun Range in Davie.

The photo was accompanied by a message that read, “Me if U don’t vote for me for Senioritis.”

Police charged the teen with a second-degree felony of making a false report.

The judge suspended the student for 21 days and ordered him to undergo a psychological evaluation.
