Lafayette Parish School System

Arrest Made in Connection to NHS Social Media Threat


A Northside High School student has been arrested in connection to Friday’s alleged social media threat that caused an evacuation of the school’s campus. The student has been charged with terrorism, placed in the juvenile detention center, and faces expulsion from school. 

This is the fourth student arrest this academic year related to a threat of violence or terrorism made on social media. The Lafayette Parish School System will continue to hold accountable anyone who makes or shares a threat of violence or terrorism directed toward an individual or school campus. Legal penalties include up to 15 years imprisonment, a $15,000 fine, or both. 

These incidents are real crimes with real consequences that result in a loss of instructional time, tie up first responders and emergency services, frighten students, and create fear and panic within our community. Families, please remind children to be responsible for what they say, post, share, or text. Parental resources are available to assist with monitoring your child’s internet use and online social media accounts.
