Suspended student arrested after hoax calls
BATON ROUGE - Authorities arrested a 13-year-old student today after they said he made prank phone calls to a Baton Rouge school while he was suspended at home.
Investigators said the 8th grade student called Westdale Middle on Jan. 28 and 29, saying both times there was a student on the campus with a weapon. The first time investigators said he claimed he was an Assistant Principal, and the second time he claimed he was a student with a gun.
Members of the School Drug Task Force searched the school and didn't find any weapons either time.
Task force members identified and arrested the student this afternoon, and said he will be booked into juvenile detention on terrorizing charges.
