Student Arrested For Making Up Anti-Gay Threats
A Central Connecticut State University student has been arrested after allegedly writing anti-gay notes to herself and then reporting them to get attention. Local CBS affiliate WTIC reports today that the CCSU campus rallied around 19-year old Lexi Pennell, when Pennell claimed she was receiving homophobic threats.
After placing a hidden camera in her room, however, campus police discovered Pennell had planted the missives herself. They confronted her in late April, she confessed and was arrested on May 2 on 25 charges, including fabricating evidence and making a false statement to the police.
Pennell wrote an apology to her roommate, WTIC reports, and said she faked the incidents because she wanted attention from her friends and a girlfriend she feared losing. She's probably lost them all now...
