Via Trinity High School:
Trinity officials were notified by police of a threat against the school due to Jeff Brohm deciding to remain at Purdue. While police investigate the threat classes are canceled and offices are closed on Thursday, Nov. 29. Students should check for WHITE DAY online lessons after noon on Thursday.
Brohm attended Trinity, as did his brothers, Greg and Brian. Their father, Oscar, is an assistant coach with the football team.
Brohm’s decision to stay at Purdue, spurning his alma mater of Louisville, was announced Wednesday after he had met with Cardinals athletic director Vince Tyra a day earlier.
It was unclear when the alleged threat was posted on Twitter.
Here’s the threat below:
Police Chief Barry Wilkerson said the person who posted the tweet could face charges even if it was intended as a joke.
“There are still ramifications, even if it’s a hoax,” Wilkerson said. “I think the FBI has made it pretty clear in some of the publications they’ve put out, a hoax, it disrupts the school, the students and the community in general. We will definitely take it seriously, and if [Trinity] wish to bring charges, they can; we can still do it ourselves as a terroristic threatening charge.
If some kid used this an excuse to get a day off, genius.
