A student is facing charges after calling in a false threat that a bomb was aboard a school bus in Bridgewater, Massachusetts on Friday afternoon.
Massachusetts State Police said students were evacuated from the bus at a rest stop on Route 24 north near Interstate 495 around 3 p.m. after a threat was received saying there was a bomb on board.
State police conducted a search with dogs, and were able to determine that the student who called in the threat was on the bus. The student admitted that it was a hoax.
Police said the student will be charged criminally, and his parents are en route to pick him up.
The other students have been put back on the bus and police said the scene is expected to be cleared shortly.
