Charges are expected to be file Monday against teenage boy accused of posting a threatening video to YouTube.

According to a press release, from the Forest County Sheriff's Department, the video—which used the Crandon School as a backdrop—depicted scenes of students being shot.

The teen responsible for the video, was arrested and a search warrant conducted at his residence. The search produced no weapons or additional evidence.

The Crandon School complex was searched Sunday. The search there also yielded no further evidence.

The Sheriff's says an investigation indicates that while the video was made in very poor judgment, there appears to be no indication of danger to the students, school personnel or general public.
