Baldwin High School Junior Isaiah Resto wondered if it was all some kind of joke.

"He's a funny kid...he probably did, and he probably took it too far," Resto said.

However, it did not seem funny at all to Gerrow's mother and grandmother - once they heard the charges against him in court on Friday, they had nothing to say to reporters, and neither did his defense attorney.

Gerrow was charged with making terroristic threats, and weapons possession. Once the principal at the school got wind of the Snapchat post, he called 911.

Here's video of police walking Gerrow from the police station to a transport vehicle:

Nassau Police then chased him on foot to his residential neighborhood near the school, and they say they retrieved a BB gun he dumped along the way. School officials in Baldwin say the school day was never disrupted, but some students wonder if it should have been.

"There's a lot of security here, too...it's useless," said Tosin Adebayo.

At the very least, some students say it was a teachable moment.

"Since we're in the age of technology, it's kind of like, common that people think they can post anything without, like consequences, so I guess this is kind of a good story to learn," says Junior Olivia Gonzalez.

In this case, the consequence is hefty bail - $100,000.
