A man is facing criminal charges for allegedly making a bogus report of an impending shooting at a Bucks County high school football game.
Authorities say Jake Cosby, 19, of Chalfont, told police Saturday afternoon he had knowledge that a student was planning to attempt a mass shooting during the Central Bucks West football game that evening.
Police said as they tried to verify Cosby's claims, they quickly determined his reports to be baseless. Investigators said Cosby then admitted to lying about the threat.
Cosby is charged with misdemeanor counts of false reports to law enforcement and terroristic threats.
