A 16-year-old Colorado girl has been charged with two counts of making a terrorist threat after she posted a video on Snapchat of her dancing with friends in a bar.
Police said the girl made the videos on Snapchat while attending a party at a Denver nightclub last week, and that she used a cellphone to record her and her friends dancing to hip-hop music in the bar.
A 17-yearold girl also was charged last week with making a terrorism threat.
In court Tuesday, the 16-girl’s attorney, Eric Ostermann, told a judge that she was upset and that her dancing was “unprofessional.”
The girl’s mother, Stephanie Johnson, said she was devastated and upset.
She said she knew that the girl had been through trauma as a result of a domestic violence situation.
“She didn’t want to do that, and she wasn’t,” she said.
She added that she believed the girl’s parents had mental health issues and had taken her daughter to a mental health facility in the past.
A police report shows the girl was a student at Centennial High School.
She was booked into the Boulder County Jail on Tuesday.
