A Gahanna-Lincoln High School student was arrested over the weekend after making what administrators call a disturbing video and harassing classmates on Twitter.

The 16-year-old sophomore, Spencer Pearson, reportedly made the video modeled after the lead character in the anarchistic movie “V for Vandetta.” The video reportedly contained the phrase “the next time we meet, I’ll have something interesting to show you.”

Gahanna administrators say the boy posted a second video, saying he didn’t mean any harm with the first video. He also reportedly threatened to “crash” the school’s computer network.

Administrators say a bomb squad was going to sweep the high school this morning as a precautionary measure.
