17 year old Jason Barry was charged with making a terrorist threat on Wednesday after leaving a potentially threatening message on a Mac at the Staten Island Mall Apple Store, according to the New York Post.
In the message Mr. Barry typed onto the screen, he threatened to set off a bomb in the store and cause "bloody death." Along with the message, Mr. Barry included the name of one of his friend's father.
A store employee saw the message and called the police. When officials tracked down Mr. Barry, he claimed he was joking and forgot to delete the message before leaving the store.
The District Attorney's Office, however, didn't see the humor in Mr. Barry's stunt and filed terrorist-related charges against him.
