LCCC STUDENT ARRESTED FOR THREAT AGAINST ROMNEY
Elyria – A 19 year old student was arrested at Lorain County Community College Monday after making a threat against Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Elyria Police arrested 19 year old Shaquille Brown of Elyria after he asked his professor, “Can we leave, because Romney is in town and I want to go shoot him.”
The Professor, stunned by what Brown had said, informed him that by law she would have to report what he had said. She then reported it to campus security who in turn contacted Elyria Police.
An Officer who was working off duty at the college went to the room and placed Brown in custody. The Officer informed Brown that he was being charged with Inducing Panic for his threat against Mr. Romney. Brown told the Officer, “I don’t even have a gun to do it.”
Brown was taken to the Elyria Police Department where the Officer made contact with the Cleveland office of the United States Secret Service. An Agent was sent to interview Brown before he was transported to the Lorain County Jail.
