Commerce police arrested a Commerce High School student last Friday after she made repeated threats to “blow up graduation” and commit other acts of violence following a dispute with a former boyfriend.
“A lot of it stemmed out of a relationship with a boyfriend,” explained Max Briggs, the school resource officer who made the arrest. “I’m hoping it will serve as a wake-up call for her.”
He described the student as “14 or 15,” and said she was banned from attending graduation because of harassment of and threats to her former boyfriend, who was to graduate Friday.
At one point, school officials confiscated her cell phone for the day to stop her from harassing the boy, according to the police report on the incident.
