Another Teen Arrested For Clown Threat

Parents-How would you punish your teen?

As police nationwide continue to investigate clown threats and sightings, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office announced they made an arrest for the clown threats made against local schools this week.  A 16 year old girl from Carroll County has been charged.

The girl is from Westminster but has ties to Washington County.  Police say she used a Facebook profile of a clown to make the threats.

The schools mentioned in the post where Williamsport High School, Springfield Middle School, North Hagerstown High School and South Hagerstown High School.

Police were able to identify the girl after investigators tracked down the IP address from where the post was originated.  That led to a residence in Westminister,

The girl has been charged as a juvenile with Electronic Mail Harassment-Minor, Disturbing School Operations, and Threat of Mass Violence.

So parents, how would you punish your teen? Take away all electronics for a year? Community service? Hard labor around the house or just let police handle the  situation?
