TX Teen Arrested for Bringing a Home Made Clock to School; Police Call it a "Hoax Bomb"
A 14-year-old North Texas student will not be charged after being accused of bringing a "hoax bomb" to school, police say.
Ahmed Mohamed, a freshman at Irving MacArthur High School, said he took an electronic clock he built over the weekend to school Monday morning to show his first period engineering teacher his skill with making things.
"I wanted to start clean with the teacher by showing him my inventions and stuff," he said.
Mohamed said problems arose when the clock rang in his back pack in class with a second teacher later in the day. He said he showed that teacher the device after other students had left the room.
