A teenager has been arrested for allegedly threatening to stab another student through direct messages on social media, Coral Springs police said.

Jeremy Byrd, 18, is charged with one count of written threat to kill or cause bodily harm to another.

The school resource officer at a high school in Coral Springs was contacted by a 10th grader on March 9 who was in a Snapchat group with other students, according to the police report.

In the Snapchat group, the 10th grader sent messages that Byrd was armed with a knife with the intention of stabbing a student on campus, according to the report.

According to the arrest report, the person who sent the warning messages was scared and also reported the threat to the administration.

The teenager showed authorities the messages between her and Byrd that happened via Instagram direct messages.

“We’re all planning on jumping on it,” the posts read. “And one of us is going to stab him.”

Byrd allegedly submitted a vanishing image of himself holding a knife in ceramics classes on campus, according to the report.

Byrd reportedly admitted to sending the messages and the photo, but claims the threat was a prank gone too far, according to the report.

Police investigating the case said they were taking the incident very seriously.
