teen arrested for threatening nike over twitter-1Clown ish.

So you think you’re cool on Twitter because you get a bunch of retweets and followers, right? Wrong you clown! The days of ‘Street Smarts’ is over because the Internet exists. You smart dumb cats are typing before you think. What is the worst thing you could do when threatening someone? Leaving a note under their door with your name and address attached to the threat, right? Well that is exactly what this teenager did when Nike left him upset that he couldn’t spend his Mom’s hard earned money on a restock. Don’t get caught sleeping like this guy, everything on the Internet is a digital paper trail that leads to your front door. I hope he understands when you’re in jail you don’t have to worry about your sneakers getting scuffed, more like… nevermind. Read the full scoop below.

ABC 5 News in Cleveland reports:

The Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Office says the Lakeside High School student sent a tweet earlier this week warning, “I’m shooting y’all store up tomorrow @ 2:30 @nikecorp.”

The (Ashtabula) Star-Beacon reports that the security division for the athletic goods company called the sheriff’s office to report the threat, saying it was being taken seriously. Local stores were put on alert.

The student — who is facing a felony charge of inducing panic — told investigators the tweet was meant to be a joke and he would never hurt anyone. The report said he was upset with Nike because he did not hear about a restock.

    Wow what the hell was this kid thinking? You can’t make threats like that to a company and expect for them to ignore it. That’s like sending threats to the Government or who ever. SMH
