MURRYSVILLE, Pa. - A Franklin Regional High School student waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday and will stand trial after posting a terroristic threat on Twitter last month.
According to police, 18-year-old Taylor Chappie is accused of posting two tweets about bringing a bomb to school.
Authorities said two students saw the tweet while in school and alerted school officials.
The tweets said, “I would leave early today if possible …I brought a bomb …it’s set to explode at 1:45 it’s not hidden in the janitor’s closet or is it?”
He went on to say, “If we go into a code yellow I will (expletive) from laughing.”
School officials said Chappie has returned to school.
Chappie may be feeling a little bit of regret about his post. Thursday morning he tweeted, “Hopefully no one reads the newspaper today … #imdumb.”
Officials said Chappie is facing numerous serious charges.
