We’ve all tried to hide things from our parents. When the truth is about to surface, sometimes we try to think of elaborate schemes to try and save ourselves from the impending doom that is about to reign down on us. These schemes are almost always desperate and ridiculous, but we never actually go through with them. Well, most of us don’t.
Danielle Shea, a 22-year-old former Quinnipac University student allegedly called in a bomb threat during the school’s graduation ceremony.
Her desperate attempt to stop the graduation was a result of her trying to hide the fact that she dropped out from school from her family.
17 Minutes after the first bomb threat, police were on the scene searching the campus for any bombs. The person making the bomb threats quickly called back saying “You haven’t cleared out graduation. That’s not a good idea.”
It didn’t take long for officers to trace the calls back to a phone that belonged to Danielle Shea, and she was arrested while still wearing her graduation cap. That’s right, a woman who wasn’t actually graduation took the time to buy a cap to convince her family that she was graduating.
Clearly, she panicked when asked by her family why she wasn’t on the graduation roster.
The ceremony was pushed back an hour and a half, and Danielle Shea was slapped with first-degree threatening and falsely reporting, and is being held on a $20,000 bond.
