THE COP SHOP
Boys' prank ends in threats
Two boys came to their mother Tuesday after a prank that "went viral" on UTube then went wrong.
The mother told police that the boys and a friend played a prank at the Denton day labor site Saturday and filmed it. They uploaded it to the popular video site and numerous people watched it. But then the boys began receiving threatening comments on the site and tweets on Twitter accounts. The mother is afraid the boys will come to harm.
