Julien Briaire, Trabuco Hills High School Senior, Faces Felony for Campus Bomb Threat

A Trabuco Hills High School senior was arrested Thursday afternoon after a bomb threat was emailed to school officials while he was on the Mission Viejo campus, according to the sheriff's department.

Julien Briaire, 18, of Foothill Ranch, was arrested about 4:30 p.m. at the school, says Jim Amormino, the Orange County sheriff's spokesman.

Briaire was booked on suspicion of making a false bomb threat, a felony, Amormino tells City News Service.

Investigators obtained search warrants that allowed them to trace the email back to the campus and, eventually, Briaire.

The school had been placed on lockdown before his arrest.

Amormino stressed that law enforcement takes bomb threats seriously, but even more so in light of recent events.

You people are very unfunny and unempathetic. Perhaps he didn't want to take a test. Perhaps someone was bullying him and he didn't want to go to school. Perhaps he was drunk and on drugs and drunk dialed the threat. You've never called in a threat as a goof? Never called 911 drunk and then had the police show up 30 minutes later and you don't even remember dialing them? Don't judge till you've walk in their moccasins like the hindus say.

He should be charged with felony stupidity too - you simply do not joke about this these days...
