Student arrested for pulling fire alarms
BATON ROUGE - Officers arrested an East Baton Rouge student after they said he admitted to pulling the fire alarm at his school more than ten times over the course of two weeks.
Investigators charged Ronaldo Castro, 17, with terrorizing and raising a false alarm Tuesday.
Authorities said video surveillance at Broadmoor High School caught Castro pulling the fire alarm Tuesday morning, causing the school to be evacuated. Staff at the school told investigators that Castro had also been responsible for more than ten other incidences where the fire alarm was activated in the last two weeks.
Police brought Castro's mother in while they questioned him about the incidences. They said Castro admitted he pulled all the fire alarms, but that they had been "accidents."
Authorities booked Castro into the parish jail on a $13,000 bond.
