Instagram Threat Lands Pebblebrook Student Behind Bars

Princeton Keith Futch wrote "that his school would be on the news Monday because he was going to bring a gun to school ... to shoot someone."

A Pebblebrook High student from Austell is in the Cobb County jail tonight, accused of posting threats on Instagram.

Between 4:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. March 8, authorities allege in a criminal warrant that Princeton Keith Futch "wrote on a social media site that his school would be on the news Monday because he was going to bring a gun to school ... to shoot someone."

A number of Pebblebrook students saw the threat, which caused "administrators to alter the normal operating procedures of Pebblebrook High School to ensure the safety of students and staff" on March 11, according to a warrant.

Futch was arrested at 9:30 a.m. Monday at the school, online jail records show.

He remains there in lieu of $10,000 bond on charges of terroristic threats and disruption of public schools.

Futch is one of two Cobb high school students arrested this week in connection with alleged online behavior. Michael William Cook was arrested around 2 p.m. Wednesday at Harrison High School, where he is a senior. He allegedly posted naked photos of at least eight children on pornographic websites.
