PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A 16-year-old was arrested in connection with a bomb threat at West Ottawa High School Thursday.

The bomb threat, which turned out to be fake, was made shortly before the student reported for classes at 7:40 a.m., according to Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.

The student is currently being held at the Ottawa County juvenile detention center on a felony threat charge.  Officials say he may also be involved with other telecommunications threat incidents prior to this one.
