Kent State Student Arrested for Threatening to "Shoot Up" School on Twitter

William Koberna, a 19-year-old sophomore at Kent State University, was arrested at his parent's home in Brunswick, OH, yesterday after threatening to "shoot up" his school on Twitter. Koberna was charged with inducing panica felonyand misdemeanor aggravated menacing.

Koberna will be arraigned this afternoon, and also faces possible suspension of expulsion from the university. Apparently learning nothing from his mistake, Koberna's friends took to Twitter to express their shock over his arrest. 

According to one frend, Ashley Mikulec, "If they saw half of his tweets and took them seriously he'd be in a mental asylum."

That's not going to help him out.
