Teen Allegedly Posts Threatening Video Online

Sep 4, 2012

A Gahanna teenager is being held on a charge of inducing panic for allegedly posting an Internet video that raised safety concerns among his classmates.

Gahanna police says 16-year-old Spencer Pearson's video posted over the weekend contained an ominous message for students at Gahanna Lincoln High School. Police say the video contained no direct threats of harm, but more than 200 concerned parents and students called about it. The Columbus bomb squad is scheduled to sweep the school this morning.
