Andrew Graham, 17, an Aledo resident and student at Aledo High School, was arrested by Aledo ISD police Thursday for creating a false alarm.
He was transported to the Parker County Jail and charged with False Alarm or Report Emergency, a felony. Graham was confined at 11:48 a.m. and being held on $7,500 bond as of early Friday afternoon.
“The young man sent an e-mail,” AISD Superintendent Dan Manning said. “He caused an alarm at the school. I think it was the result of a bad decision at a bad time of year. I don’t think real harm was intended.”
Manning said the district dealt with a similar situation at the Daniel Ninth Grade Center earlier in the year.
AHS Principal Dan Peterson met with students later in the day Thursday, according to district’s website, telling them to stay focused and end the year on a positive note.
He said pranks and poor decisions can create serious consequences for students.
