A Charlotte high school student is accused of making threats at his school.
However, Tristan Lloyd said authorities arrested the wrong guy. The 16-year-old Olympic High School student was arrested on Thursday.
Officials said the threat was found written on a calculator inside a classroom on Thursday. They did not specify what type of threat it was.
After interviewing other students, police arrested Lloyd on Thursday evening on charges of felony false reporting mass violence against an educational property and misdemeanor communication of threats.
Lloyd said he did not send the message. He said he believes this is all the result of bullying. He said he's received threatening messages in the past from a male student.
"I'd get one every day, 'You're stupid. You're dumb,'" Lloyd said.
Father Cecil Lloyd is outraged.
"My son is innocent," he said.
Cecil Lloyd didn't find out about the threat until Friday morning – hours after his son was arrested. He attempted to speak to the principal Friday.
"They would not let me inside and speak," he said. "They called extra police like I'm a criminal. The culprit in this is still in school walking free and my son was detained for no reason at all."
Extra police officers were on the school campus Friday.
