Former U-Mary Student Pleads Not Guilty to Facebook Threat

Posted:
Bismarck, ND -

A former University of Mary football player pleads not guilty to a terrorizing charge involving threatening comments he made on facebook.

Patrick Casas is accused of posting comments on facebook November 22nd prompting the University of Mary to go into lock down.

Burleigh County Deputy Mike Stoltz says Casas made two threatening comments on the social media website. He read them in court.

The first comment was, "there's nothing wrong with a little shooting as long as the right people get shot." and the second one was posted that day of the incident and that was, "I'll make the Virginia Tech shooting look like a game of paintball."

U-Mary went into lock down until Casas was located walking south of Bismarck.

Deputy Stoltz says no weapons were found on Casas or in his dorm.

He says Casas told him during an interview he had no intentions of hurting anyone.

"He did tell me he was very pissed off. But he stated he wouldn't hurt any body. He stated he had a different sense of humor and those were just jokes to take the stress away," says Deputy Stoltz.

Casas is from Chicago, he's living there with his parents after posting a $5,000 bond.
