Burbank student arrested over Twitter threats

Posted: Updated:

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a Burbank high school student has been arrested for allegedly making threats against classmates on Twitter.

Police Officer Joshua Kendrick tells City News Service that officials became aware of the threats Thursday evening.

Officers interviewed the John Burroughs High School student at his home with his family, and then took him into custody.

Kendrick did not elaborate about the nature of the threats or the charges the suspect may face. He says no students were in danger.

Officials say school will be in session Friday.

The suspect's name was not released because he is a minor.
