A 17-year-old Destrehan student was arrested after making threats against her school.

According to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office report, the teenager said out loud to her teacher and classmates that she did not like the school, wanted it gone, and if she had a gun she would shoot the school.

The student’s teacher told police that the teenager had been non-compliant in completing her assignments and also in her behavior. The teacher said that the student stated loudly,

“I just hate this school.”

The teacher says the 17-year-old then repeated that and added “I want this school to go away. If I had a gun, I would shoot the school.”

The teacher then notified administration and the sheriff’s office was called.

When sheriff’s officials arrived at the school, the student was arrested.

“When someone becomes unruly, we contact the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office,” Rochelle Cancienne-Touchard, the district’s public information director, said. “That’s just standard procedure.”
