So now, high school pranks earn you the label of “terrorist.”




Police say a 15-year-old freshman boy: faces a second-degree criminally negligent burning charge, a misdemeanor, and a first-degree terroristic threatening charge, a felony, after he: ignited[3]: a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom of West High School Wednesday morning.

Under Alaska law, a person causing the evacuation of a building can receive a terroristic threatening charge. And that is reportedly what happened after alarms sounded at West High at 10:57 a.m.

The key word is “can” receive a charge.
