JAMESTOWN, North Dakota — Jamestown's police chief says authorities plan terrorizing charges against a student who allegedly made threats that led to a brief lockdown of the University of Jamestown campus last week.
Chief Scott Edinger tells The Jamestown Sun (http://bit.ly/1fBzKmv ) that the student is being evaluated at the state mental hospital. No charges will be filed until that is complete.
The 18-year-old student from California allegedly threatened to kill three students and drink their blood as part of a satanic ritual. The alleged threats last Thursday led to a half-hour lockdown of the campus while authorities searched for the student.
The student's father tells the newspaper that his son was just joking around, and that his son has been expelled over the misunderstanding. The school won't confirm that because of privacy rules.
