DENHAM SPRINGS - A teenage boy in Livingston Parish has been arrested after he allegedly made threats against area schools online.
On Tuesday, the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office announced it was charging the 16-year-old from Denham Springs with terrorizing in connection with threats made on the Snapchat app Tuesday.
