Posted: Updated:

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH (AP) - A 17-year-old North Attleborough High School student who allegedly threatened to "shoot up" the school has been ordered held without bail.

Patrick Skrabec pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on Monday in Attleboro District Court on a charge of making a threat causing the disruption of school.

A dangerousness hearing has been scheduled for Thursday.

The teen's lawyer, Maria Deaton, told the Sun Chronicle of Attleborough that the incident was being "blown out of proportion," and that her client is a good kid who has never before been in trouble.

Skrabec allegedly told police he made a comment about shooting up the school to other students in his math class last Tuesday.

The student told police he was joking and he had no access to guns.
