An Ontario teenager gets a surprise visit from the police, and may find himself in Juvenile Court, for a prank he played on Facebook. A 14-year-old boy posted this picture on the social media website, saying a Purge would happen from Sunday night through Monday morning at Ontario High School. It was based on the movie The Purge, and its sequel, The Purge: Anarchy, which depict a twelve-hour period of government-sanctioned lawlessness with no consequences. The boy was found through a subpoena of Facebook and internet provider records. Police say the posting sent fear throughout the Ontario community. The boy's 13-year-old friend told police he was not involved in the Purge posting, but knew about it. The county prosecutor's office will consider charges, which could include Disorderly Conduct, Inciting Violence, and Inducing Panic.
