U.P. student taken into custody for Facebook threat Submitted: 02/25/2013
Wakefield, MI - Always think before you hit send. That's the lesson a U.P. high school student may have learned Monday.

Michigan State Police responded to a threat made toward students at Wakefield - Marenisco School.

A 16-year-old student apparently made a threat of gun violence on Facebook.

It was directed at students who had been disciplined for bullying last week.

Police took the 16-year-old into custody without incident this morning.

The student was referred to Michigan Probate Court.
