Jail time ordered in bomb threat case


Barron County (WQOW) - A young man will spend time in jail for a bomb threat at his school.

Karl Lewis pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct on Wednesday.  Last year, he was accused of writing a threatening message on a bathroom wall at the Barron High School.  Students were evacuated to a nearby church as the building was searched.  Hallway surveillance video helped investigators figure out who went into the bathroom before the threat was found. 

Police say Lewis admitted he did it as a joke.  He was sentenced to five days in jail.
