LITHIA, Fla. - A Hillsborough County woman was arrested Thursday after she reportedly threatened to blow up Pinecrest Elementary School, according to a statement from the Sheriff's Office.
26-year-old Jessica Schauer of Lithia was at her child's school, Pinecrest, when she was heard to say, "Don't bring your kid to school that day". When asked "which day" she replied, "The day I blow it up," according to the sheriff's statement.
