Student Charged After Sending Threatening Message
KENT, Ohio — A Kent State University student was arrested and charged with inducing panic and aggravated menacing after sending a threatening message.
Authorities say the student, William Koberna, 19, of Brunswick, threatened violence to the university via the social media website Twitter. The Brunswick Police Department issued a warrant for Koberna’s arrest, and he was taken into custody without incident Sunday afternoon.
Koberna is scheduled to be arraigned Monday. He also faces possible suspension or dismissal from Kent State University, where he is a sophomore.
Kent State University President Lester A. Lefton says of the incident:
“Any threat to our campus community is taken seriously and immediately investigated. Our students, employees, and all those who come to campus should know that their safety is our top priority.”
