High school student accused of e-mailing threats to teachers

A Fountain Valley, Calif., teenage boy accused of making violent threats against two teachers at his high school told investigators the e-mails were meant as a joke, police said.

Police have asked the Orange County district attorney to file criminal charges against the 16-year-old boy who was arrested at Fountain Valley High School on May 23 on suspicion of making criminal threats, said Lt. Paul McInnis. He was later released to his parents.

"I think that people think they can hide behind the veil of anonymity when they are online," said Chris Herzfeld, Fountain Valley High School principal. "Any threats like that, we get the police department involved."
