MADISON, IN (WAVE) - A teenager has been arrested after he allegedly made a prank call to a local McDonald's restaurant and threatened to "blow the place up" and shoot customers.
According to a release sent to local news media Wednesday morning, a 17-year-old used a 13-year-old's phone to call a McDonald's in Madison on Tuesday. The call was made from Hanover, Ind., the release said.
The restaurant was evacuated and locked down while multiple law-enforcement agencies searched the building and found nothing.
The 17-year-old told police "he made the bomb threat as a prank."
He's now charged with intimidation, and the Jefferson County (Ind.) Prosecutor's Office is further reviewing the case.
