A woman mad over a traffic citation called in a bomb threat at a Florida school, police said. The allegations landed her on the fast track to jail.
The incident started last week at a school in Brevard County, Florida, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office stated on Oct. 11.
Tiffanimarie Pirozzi was given a traffic citation by a school resource officer. Then she was removed from the school and warned of trespassing for causing a disruption, according to the sheriff’s office.
Pirozzi was told that she would have to have someone else pick up her child later that day.
The suspect then threw the trespassing warning out of a car window, officials said. She called and threatened to assault the principal. When that didn’t work, Pirozzi then called 911 and said if someone didn’t help get her child she would blow up the school, authorities said.
The school went on lockdown until police determined there was no threat to staff or students, according to the sheriff’s office.
Pirozzi was arrested on various charges, including false report of a bomb. She was booked into jail and bond was set at $22,500.
“Folks it’s real simple, our teachers and school staff have a hard enough job these days without having someone threaten to harm them or our schools!” sheriff’s officials said in a statement. “There are mature ways to deal with something that you may not like, but threatening to harm a school administrator or the school itself is not going to be tolerated in Brevard County!!”
