PALM COAST, Fla. -- A high school student was arrested Thursday for allegedly calling in a bomb threat to his school on Memorial Day.
18-year-old Damon Smith, a Flagler Palm Coast High School student, faces a felony charge of Making a False Report of a Bomb, according to a release from Lt. Bob Weber, Flagler County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer.
Smith had been suspended from school the week before and was scheduled to return on Tuesday. Weber said Smith allegedly left the threatening message on an attendance clerk's voice mail, but the message was not discovered until Thursday.
In the message, Smith said he would blow up the school on Tuesday "or some other day." Detectives were able to trace the call to Smith's home.
He was booked into the Flagler County Inmate Facility on $500 bond.
