It comes as three Kentucky high school students were arrested after making a video telling their teachers they had a bomb or gun as part of a dangerous new TikTok prank.

There have been four different bomb threats at two different schools at Oldham County High School and South Oldham High School since the new school year started on August 9.

Police said three of the students, whose names were not released because they are minors, are now charged with making terroristic threats, although the threats were deemed “empty” threats intended to increase opinion on social media.

Eric Davis, director of student services at Oldham County School, told WDRB News that “this is what will happen — it’s not an ‘if’ or a ‘maybe’ — but it will happen if you make these kinds of threats, even if it’s a joke. ‘

He added: “It’s been a huge disruption… a huge disruption. This has been a rough start, I think, especially with the social media craze.”

Oldham County Schools said all four students have been suspended. They have also been ordered to undergo a mental health screening before returning to the classroom.
