18-Year-Old Arrested for Threatening to Shoot Someone Over Star Wars Spoiler
A Montana 18-year-old was arrested for threatening a Facebook friend after he posted a spoiler for the new Star Wars movie.
(No, I’m not going to say what the spoiler was, but for people who have already seen The Force Awakens, according to TMZ, it sounds like it’s the big scene you’re thinking of.)
18-year-old Arthur Roy, Reuters reports, saw a status a Facebook friend from another school posted about the new film, which he hadn’t seen yet. This apparently angered him so much Roy posted, in response, a picture of himself brandishing a gun and threatening to come to the other student’s school and shoot him.
The school itself was placed on lockdown and the student being threatened was legitimately concerned for his safety.
Roy was arrested, appeared in court Monday, and his bail was set at $10,000.
(Insert lame “dark side” joke here.)
