College Drop Out Fakes Bomb Threat At Graduation And The Reason Why Is Shocking

Posted: Updated:
MERIDEN, Conn. - We've all heard why we shouldn't lie, right? Because..."when you tell one lie, it leads to another." Well,
an "almost" college graduate had to learn this lesson the really hard way.

22-year-old Danielle Shea of Quincy, Massachusetts was arrested on Sunday in her cap and gown for supposedly calling bomb threats in to a commencement ceremony at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. It was a graduation ceremony her family was attending to see her graduate. There was a little bit of a problem though; Shea wasn't actually graduating and she had not informed her family of this, nor did she plan to.

Instead, Shea was determined to do everything she could to convince her family that she had in fact obtained her college degree. Perhaps for her effort in this matter, she deserves an "A."

Shea had actually dropped out of college the year before. Her mother had been paying for her education and for whatever reason, Shea didn't feel she could confess to the truth. She even went as far as to purchase a cap and gown for the ceremony. When her family showed up and didn't see Shea's name on the graduation roster, Shae panicked and came to the conclusion that the only thing left to do was to fake a few bomb threats.

She place two calls warning of bomb threats on campus, forcing the graduates and the more than 5,000 people attending the commencement to move a mile away to the TD Banks Sports Center. Police were able to trace the calls to Shae's cell phone. Shae called the library on campus for the first bomb threat and then made a second call saying there were several bmb threats on campus and not clearing out the graduation wasn't a good idea. 

Shae's hope was that the ceremony would be canceled and her family would be able to take her word for it that she was indeed a graduate of Quinnipiac University. What really happened? Shae was arrested and she has now been chaged with falsely reporting an incident and threatening in the first degree. She's being held on a $20,000 bond.
