A teen whose bomb threat forced the evacuation of Bobby Ray Elementary on Thursday was committed to the Department of Youth Services.Judge Larry Ross accepted a guilty plea from 15-year-old Logan Hollandsworth on Monday and ordered him to be held in state’s custody for an undetermined amount of time. He was charged with filing a false report, a class C felony.“There is no telling how much trouble you caused,” said Ross. “Can you give any explanation about why you would do something so absolutely ridiculous as what you’ve done?”Hollandsworth said, “I was trying to get some other kid in trouble because he was picking on me.”According to family members, Hollandsworth made the call from home at about midnight and used *67 to block his number thinking the program would prevent anyone from tracing the call back to his home.
