Two Flowing Wells High Students Arrested For Threats Made Via Facebook

Posted By on Thu, Jan 31, 2013 at 5:40 PM

Tucson Police have arrested two Flowing Wells High School students for impersonating one student, and threatening five others, as well as making threats to harm teachers and "shoot up" Flowing Wells.

According to Tucson Police, Charles Schaming, 17, and Guillermo Acorn, 16, used the Facebook photo of a student from another school to create a false Facebook profile with which they threatened and harassed other Flowing Wells students.

Detectives were able to track down the offenders by tracing the IP address of the profile that had posted threats on the profile pages of five students.

Schaming and Acorn have each been charged with two felony charges, including one count of interference with an educational institution, and one count of identity theft; Schaming, however, faces 24 misdemeanor counts, while Acorn faces eight, as Acorn wasn't involved in making threats against each student that was victimized.

Really, these idiots should be thanking their lucky stars that they did this now, rather than if/when Michelle Ugenti's H.B. 2004 becomes law. That would have stacked the charges even higher against these kids who apparently didn't realize that Facebook is for secretly following crushes and shameless self-promotion, not threats.
