Pursuant to FS 790.163 (false report about planting a bomb,explosive, or weapon of mass destruction). This is a second degree felony charge. Our cyber crimes unit quickly identified the student involved as he is an 8th grader at Pine View Middle.

Through our investigation, it was determined this was a false threat and we believe there is no threat to the school or students. Wells has also been trespassed from the school pending an expulsion hearing. We conducted a sweep of the school and found it to be safe.

Our detectives stated Isaiah Wells said he thought the stunt would be “funny” but had no intention of acting on his threat.
