Police arrest Doss student after bomb threat

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested a suspect in connection with a bomb threat at Doss High School earlier this week.

Police evacuated the school on April 16 after finding graffiti on a bathroom wall indicating a bomb had been placed inside the school.

On April 17, 18-year-old Robbie Shields -- a student at the school -- was arrested after being questioned by police.

According to the arrest report, Shields, was responsible for the threat. The arrest report says Shields, along with a group of other girls, scrawled the threat on the wall of the girls' restroom.

The next day, Shields was brought into the principal's office, where she denied having anything to do with the threat. Police and school administrators compared Shields' handwriting from class work to the writing on the bathroom wall and "several of the letters were identical and matched."

After police read Shields her rights, they say she refused to acknowledge understanding her rights and "got irate." She was arrested as she tried to leave.

Shields is charged with terroristic threatening, criminal mischief, and disorderly conduct.
