A Concord teenager has been arrested for sending threatening text messages to an ex-girlfriend, a police lieutenant said today. Police Sunday arrested the 15-year-old, male Mt. Diablo High School student for allegedly sending the hostile text messages to the girl, a Summit High School sophomore, Lt. Garrett Voerge said. The suspect, whose name has not been released because he is a juvenile, sent multiple texts to the girl in which he described specific acts of violence, Voerge said. In one of the messages, the boy threatened to bring a gun to school.

Investigators quickly learned that the teenager did not own or have access to a firearm, Voerge said. Nonetheless, the boy was arrested and booked into Juvenile Hall. “It was alarming, inappropriate, and certainly – we believe – criminal,” Voerge said. The lieutenant declined to comment on the specifics of the text messages, but called the incident “high school drama taken way too far.”
