Barron Collier Student Arrested Following Threatening E-mail
Collier County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested a Barron Collier High School student early Thursday after an investigation determined that she sent a threatening e-mail to a teacher.
The student is charged with written threats to kill or do bodily injury, which is a felony.
Detectives say that on Feb.18 she used another student’s e-mail account to send an e-mail that said, “Shooting you and the school Tuesday” to a teacher.
Britney Brown, 16, 106th Ave. N., is charged with written threats to kill or do bodily injury, which is a felony.
Detectives determined that the student associated with the e-mail address did not author it.
Using internet analytics, Collier County Public Schools assisted detectives in determining that the e-mail was sent from Britney’s cell phone. The investigation established that the other student had provided his log-in information to her earlier in the school year.
The name and address of a juvenile arrested on felony charges is public record in Florida.
