Another Juvenile Charged with Terrorizing
A second Caddo Parish teen posing as a clown on social media has been arrested for threatening a classmate.
Caddo Sheriff's Detective Larry Pierce arrested a 15-year-old boy last evening and charged him with terrorizing. The teen is accused of sending a threatening message to a classmate on Instagram using an account for "williethecloen."
These clown threats have been sweeping the nation over the past month, and a 16-year-old Caddo Parish girl, along with two 14-year-olds and a 15-year-old from Bossier, have already been arrested for posting such threats.
"Let's be very clear, a threat of violence toward anyone will be treated seriously by the Caddo Sheriff's Office," said Sheriff Steve Prator. "We do not view such action as a joke, and anyone who makes such a post will not remain anonymous. Clearly, we can and will identify you, and then you will be arrested. Parents, please be aware of your child's social media activity and take time to discuss with them the consequences of their actions."
