Police: Fake bomb threat saved students from tests

Naples, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Trying to get friends out of schoolwork lands a Southwest Florida teenager in jail, police said. 

Grayson Alexander Barry, 18, called in a fake bomb threat that forced the evacuation of Naples High School Thursday so that the two friends would not have to take tests that day, police said.

The Naples Daily News reports that Barry confessed to making the call to the school at about 9 a.m. Thursday after police confronted him with evidence that the call had come from his cell phone through his Google Voice account. 

He faces a felony charge of making a false report concerning the planting of a bomb. His bail was set at $10,000.
