A search of the boy revealed he was not in possession of any weapons. After further investigation he was arrested and booked into the Juvenile Detention Center and charged with terrorizing.
CPSO Safe School Deputy Cornell Guidry is the arresting deputy on this case. CPSO Detective Clay Planchard is the lead investigator on this case.
