KALAMAZOO, Mich. – A Kalamazoo high school student has been charged with making threats as a clown at two schools.

Jalen Williams, 17, was arraigned Monday on counts of Using a Computer to Commit a Crime and Attempted Making of a False Report or Threat of Terrorism.  The first charge carries a possible penalty of seven years in prison and the second carries a possible penalty of four years in prison.

Williams allegedly made the Facebook post on October 6th, from an anonymous account using a creepy clown photo, that he’d be “shooting up kc or norrix…or both.”  He was arrested on the morning of October 7th.

Williams is a student at Loy Norrix HS.

    He’s a really good kid-straight and narrow. I am sad he did something so stupid to follow the crowd. He doesn’t get into trouble…. You people focused on how he wears his hair are the reason we have idiots running around in costumes anyway- ignorant and self absorbed… judgmental and arrogant. You’re also the type of people who think because someone does something stupid it means they are a bad person. I’d love to know what amazing lifestyle you live… sitting online and posting childish comments, more childish than the ones these KIDS post out of immaturity. Be an adult, grow up, shut up, and look at the real issue. Adults dressing up like clowns and actually killing people. Had they not, this would have played out differently. People are sick. This kid just made a dumb choice messing around. He isn’t the type to ever hurt anyone. Get real.
