HOOVER, Ala. (WBRC) - A student has been charged for sending a threatening message that disrupted the Hoover City School system on Tuesday.

A 15-year-old sophmore confessed to sending an anonymous threat using AirDrop to another student at The Riverchase Career Connection Center, known as RC3.

Although an investigation proved that the threat was not credible, according to the Hoover police department, it caused a significant disruption in school activities, with some parents electing not to send their children to school. Additional security measures were put in place as a precaution.

Hoover police presented the facts to a Shelby County Juvenile Court magistrate and a petition for Harassing Communication was obtained.
