More on the latest Chippewa Valley threat

Chippewa Valley Student Faces Felony Charges:

We have more news on the threat made at Chippewa Valley High in Michigan that I told you about here. The suspect is 17-year-old Joe Coppage and he says the threat was....wait for it....a joke.

While in science class, Coppage typed a message that said "I have a giant BOMB. I’m blowing up the school." He tried to print the message, but the printer jammed and the teacher discovered the threat.

Coppage claimed it was just a prank, but prosecutors said the message is nothing to laugh at and hope other students will get the message. They said he was angry at his teacher when he typed the message.

What does he get for his joke?

Coppage faced felony charges in court and will be tried as an adult. His bond was set at $10,000.

How funny is it now?
