PORT ST. LUCIE — A 14-year-old boy was taken into custody Friday in connection with a threat made on social media toward his middle school Tuesday, according to police. 

His arrest comes just two days after a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 were killed. 

After being suspended for 10 days from Southport Middle School, the Port St. Lucie teen wrote on his social media account, “I might get expelled. I hope I do so I can shoot up the School,” according to Port St. Lucie police.

Threats, hoaxes, anxiety and arrests: An uneasiness in schools after Parkland shooting




The day after a gunman fatally shot 17 people at a South Florida high school, many of Americas teenagers went to school, as always, returning to routines that usually felt safe.

But on campuses across the country, a palpable uneasiness descended on faculty, staff and students, who struggled with news out of Parkland, where police say Nikolas Cruz walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR-15 and opened fire.

Administrators, police and school resources officers were on high alert, too, looking out for “copycats” students motivated by the shooters actions to threaten or engage in similar behavior. More than 10 schools across the country reported threats of violence Thursday, prompting officials to arrest students and put buildings on lockdown; some districts even canceled classes.

In Spartanburg, South Carolina, a ninth-grade student at Broome High School was arrested after he allegedly posted a photo of himself on Snapchat wearing a partial mask and holding what appeared to be an assault rifle.

The photo was captioned, “Round 2 of Florida tomorrow,”

Former Twin Ports mayor arrested after vehicle crash in Douglas County


The 61-year-old, who has three convictions on his record for operating while intoxicated, pleaded not guilty Wednesday afternoon in Douglas County Circuit Court to misdemeanor charges of obstructing an officer and failure to install an ignition interlock device.

A criminal complaint alleges that Bergson crashed his Toyota Sienna minivan into a tree near his cabin in Lake Nebagamon shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday, leaving the scene with extensive front-end damage and the airbags deployed.

Workers in the area reported the incident to authorities, who confronted Bergson a short time later at his cabin. Douglas County Sheriff’s Office deputies reported that Bergson tried to pin the crash on his girlfriend, who they discovered was in Madison.

Bergson is required by court order to have an interlock device installed on his vehicle. A search of the minivan found no such device, but did turn up a case of beer, according to a criminal complaint.

Court Commissioner Rebecca Lovejoy set both an $800 signature bond and $200 cash bail to ensure Bergson’s future appearances in court. He was ordered to not operate a vehicle without a valid ID and ignition interlock and not use or possess alcohol as conditions of his bail.

Bergson was released from the Douglas

Orlando Brown Epic Mug Shot After Family Beef


Ex-Disney star Orlando Brown posed for this incredible mug shot after a family dispute led to cops arresting him for a completely different case.

Cops were called to the former “That’s So Raven” star’s apartment Thursday morning in Barstow where police say he, his girlfriend and her mother got into a heated shouting match. Cops say they checked the system and an active warrant popped up for both Orlando and his girlfriend’s mother.

He remains behind bars.
