FARMINGTON -- A prosecutor with the 2nd District Juvenile Court said the 17-year-old who set off a smoke bomb at Clearfield High School will be charged with misdemeanors.
On Monday, Deputy Davis County Attorney Ryan Perkins said investigators believe the smoke bomb incident that injured five girls was nothing more than a prank that went bad.
But because five students received burns from the smoke bomb, the 17-year-old, who has not been named, will be charged with misdemeanors in juvenile court, Perkins said.
The smoke bomb was ignited last Wednesday in the commons area of the school. Students were evacuated for about 25 minutes until crews cleared the area.
Police had considered charging the juvenile with first-degree felony arson.
